"The Double Road Race® is the only running event with a halftime. Run a 10K first, rest and relax for about an hour, then run a 5K," says Bob Anderson, who created the new sport Double Road Racing, and founded Runner's World magazine when he was 17.
Thousands around the country are running the Double Road Race. Are you ready to do this challenge?
