Description

The Boring Marathon, Half-Boring Half-Marathon, and Constantly Boring 8K will take place on September 17, 2017. All races start and finish at Boring Station Trailhead Park in downtown Boring, Oregon. Parking will be at Boring Middle School and surrounding neighborhood. Please use SE Wally Rd and SE School Ave to reach parking after 6:15 am, as runners will be crossing SE Dee St. 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 - Marathon is limited to 100, Half to 150 and 8K to 100 due to medal numbers. Take 2! races (marathon, half and 8K) will open as these fill. Participants in Take 2! events will receive their choice of an available previous year's shirt at packet pickup and a previous year's medal at the finish line.

Packet pick-up - Location on Friday, Sept. 15th, will be at Gresham Therapeutic Associates located at 283 NW Miller Ave., Gresham, OR, from 12-5 pm. Saturday's packet pick-up will also be from 12-5 pm, but at Boring Brewing. Here, you can enjoy a discounted beer in your race pint glass after getting your packet! Boring Brewing is located at 29300 SE Haley Rd., Boring, OR, and minors are allowed. Packet pick-up on race day will start at 5 am at Boring Station Trailhead Park, the race's start and finish (28008 SE Dee St., Boring, OR).

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


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 are guaranteed to receive a shirt. After September 1, shirts in your first size choice may not be available. 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 August 31 so we can get your your Boring swag on time for the races on September 17. 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).
