OVERLAND PARK DOUBLE RACING FESTIVAL
"The Double Road Race is the only running event with a halftime. Run 10K first, rest and relax for about an hour, then run 5K. Times are combined for scoring. All Double finishers receive a medal, high performance shirt, cinch sack bag, and more," says Runner's World founder Bob Anderson, who created the Double Road Race.
"I loved the Double," says Cindy. "It was a very fun race. I plan to do it again," says Abel. "Will I run it again?...In a heartbeat!" stated Tim. "I loved every minute of it. This is a very unique event that I feel would be appealing to runners of all levels," said Tyson. "Really enjoyed the recovery zone," stated Kevin.
