Although it's called the Boring Marathon, you won't get bored while participating in this event. The Boring Marathon, Half-Boring Half-Marathon, Constantly Boring 8k and Virtually Boring Virtual Marathon take place in Boring, OR with spectacular views of Mt. Hood and goat sightings, among other things.
Each year is slightly different so check the official website for route options and registration fees.
Participants receive medals and beer glasses.
If you're planning your fall runs, this marathon takes place a few weeks after Head to Coast and a few weeks before the Portland Marathon. It's a good opportunity to train for the Portland Marathon.
