The Motomarathon™ Association is offering BMW Motorcycle Owners of America rally-goers a chance to try out the Motomarathon format of long-distance sport-touring at a day rate.
“Motomarathons are four full days of riding, and participants are given credit for any checkpoints they complete whether or not they ride the entire event,” said Motomarathon Founder John Metzger. “Instead of charging the usual $50 fee for the four-day Pacific Northwest Motomarathon, we’re giving first-time participants a chance to experience Motomarathon’s endurance touring one day at time for only $15 per day or with the purchase of my new book, Motorcycling Through Midlife, which we’ll be selling at the Rally.”
The 2013 Pacific Northwest Motomarathon runs in conjunction with the 41st Annual BMW MOA International Rally in Salem, July 18-21. Motomarathon routes will loop all four days out of the Rally, centered at the Oregon State Fairgrounds, and from the nearby Motomarathon headquarters hotel, Days Inn Black Bear.
Motomarathon officials will be handing out Day One routes at 8pm on July 17th and the next morning at 8am on the 18th, at the Days Inn Black Bear, 1600 Motor Ct., NE, Salem, OR 97301. Subsequent days will follow the same schedule. The Association will also be operating Booth #316 at the Rally to check in riders, and sell Metzger’s book.
Motomarathon routes and checkpoints are kept secret until the night before each day’s ride. Participants complete a series of self-recorded checkpoints using digital cameras to photograph their badge numbers at designated landmarks. The Motomarathon Association keeps track of accumulated checkpoints for each event, season and overall lifetime.
