Three exciting family fun and world class events:
The Double is one race with two legs - you first run the 10k and then one hour and 45 minutes later the 5k leg starts. "The Double Road Race is the only running event with a halftime," says creator Bob Anderson. Times from the two legs are added together for scoring. "Lets Do The Double together in Denver," says Bob.
Denver, the Mile High City! This is the only Double held at altitude, in an area where many elite runners go to take advantage of the training benefits of running at altitude.
The Double is challenging enough, in and of itself, but anyone looking for an extra challenge in running a Double should think of this event, which has all the makings of being a very popular competition in a Rocky Mountain High area with seemingly an endless number of runners.
This Double will be run in one of Denver’s most attractive parks with dramatic views of the pristine Rocky Mountains! Sloan's Lake Park is located in the up-and-coming Highlands neighborhood of Denver, Sloan's Lake is an urban oasis, with the enormous Slong's Lake taking center stage. The Denver Double runs around the park.
