Boromir arrives in Rivendell at night.

The Lord of the Rings, Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

'In this evil hour I have come on an errand over many dangerous leagues 1 to Elrond: a hundred and ten days I have journeyed all alone.'

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 2, Ch 2, The Council of Elrond

'Here,' said Elrond..., 'is Boromir, a man from the South. He arrived in the grey morning, 2 and seeks for counsel. I have bidden him to be present, for here his questions will be answered.'

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 2, Ch 2, The Council of Elrond

1A league is approximately three miles.

Unfinished Tales, Part 3, Ch 1, The Disaster of the Gladden Fields: Appendix, Númenórean Linear Measures

2Though The Tale of Years places Boromir's arrival at night on October 24th, Elrond's remarks indicate that he may have actually arrived sometime past midnight, on the 25th. The date from The Tale of Years was used as this entry's date.
