Attaching ceiling box to running board

Is it against 'code' to attach a ceiling box onto a 1" x 4" running board?
Is there a minimum board width/thickness requirement when mounting junction boxes to running boards?

That's pretty limited info, but the answer to whether you can attach it to a 1x4 is yes.

If you get old work box it is "attached" to nothing but drywall.
