The Boring Marathon, Half-Boring Half-Marathon, and Constantly Boring 8K will take place on September 18, 2016. All races start and finish at Boring Station Trailhead Park in downtown Boring, Oregon.
The three races are all on the Springwater Trail, out and back, with the marathon having a few side detours to take in some local neighborhoods. The marathon mainly follows the Springwater Trail into Gresham and then continues onto a portion of the Gresham-Fairview Trail to Division Street before returning to the Springwater Trail, heading further west for a few more miles, then turning and heading home to Boring. The Half Boring Half is an out-and-back on the Springwater Trail. The same goes for the Contantly Boring 8K, which never really leaves the Boring area, so truly is constantly Boring. All races support the cross country and track teams at Barlow H.S. and West Orient Middle School and all proceeds go directly to these programs.
Limit – Each race is limited to 500 participants total. Registration closes when this number is reached.
Time limit – Walkers are welcome, but because we run part of the race along roads, we need to discontinue aid stations and traffic control after 6 hours. However, we will stay until the last runner/walker comes in and nobody will be disqualified by time. No early starts (new starting time this year)
Boring Sister City of Dull, Scotland – any resident of Dull, Scotland gets free registration (but you pay the travel)
Awards – All entries prior to September 1 will receive a shirt. After September 1, shirts in your first size choice are not guaranteed. Medals to marathon, half marathon and 8K finishers. Awards to top places (male and female) in each age group for all races.
Refunds and deferrals – Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds or deferrals once you have registered.
Changing races – If you signed up for a race and wish to change to a different race, please contact the race director before September 1.
Virtually Boring Races – Yes, you can sign up to do a Boring Race without leaving the comfort of your own Boring location. You can be Boring really anywhere in the world with these races. Sign up under the virtual races (and you save travel) and we will send you a shirt, medal and bib. If you send us your time (it can be whatever course you choose or even a treadmill), we will add it to a Virtual Results page with Huber Timing. Deadline to sign up is September 1 so we can get your your Boring swag on time for the races on September 18. If you send us a photo of you on your virtual run, we will add it our webpage (which will be a virtually Boring picture of you). No limit on the number of virtual registrations.
