Rancho Santa Fe family ‘Rocks & Rolls’ at half marathon


Rancho Santa Fe residents Ron Boren and his 13-year-old son Brett rolled to sixth place in the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Half Marathon relay. Team “SC Trojans” competed along with 400 other relay teams where one member (Ron) ran the first leg of six miles and another member (Brett) ran a second leg of 7.1 miles to complete a total of 13.1 miles for a half marathon.

The Borens finished with a time of 1:42:10.

The father-son team completed this feat last year, as well as placing 23rd overall and sixth in the men’s division.

“We did great times and I am proud of my dad,” Brett said afterward.

At age 57, Ron has chosen to hang up his shoes for half marathons and run in 10K races from now on. Brett is actively seeking another partner to join him next year. Interested runners can contact him at
