Join us for the 4th annual
Pleasanton Double Racing Festival
Sunday Dec 20, 2015
"Running with a halftime"
Most Fun San Francisco Bay Area
Christmas Running Event
**Santa Runner contest**
"Double Racing®, Double for short, is a two stage running challenge. Participants first run the longer stage, take a halftime break and then run the second stage. Times are combined for scoring. Participants must complete both stages to get an official time.
Double Racing® is more than just running. The halftime break makes it unique. Runners normally don't stop, recover and then run again. Runners who have completed a Double have enjoyed this new challenge. Many have already run more than one Double Racing event. The second stage starts 1 hour and 45 minutes after the first leg.
"Runners and walkers of all abilities are making this their pre Christmas annual running event," says Double Racing creator and Runner's World and now Double Runner founder Bob Anderson.
