June 29, 2014 Overland Park - Three Exciting Events:
"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.
The Overland Park area is known for the luscious colors that give the town its beauty. The course for this race features clean, wide roads shaded over by trees that hovered over the campgrounds of soldiers during the Civil War and Native American settlements of the Colonial American era. Overland Park has consistently ranked in the top 10 of the 100 Best Cities to Live in the United States, and now it hosts the Double Road Race.
