"Double Racing is the only running event with a halftime. Our title event is the Double Road Race 15k Challenge. Run a 10K first, rest and relax for about an hour, then run a 5K. Times are combined for scoring. All Double finishers receive a medal, shirt, draw-string tote bag, color program and more," says Bob Anderson, who created the sport of Double Racing.
"We have added the Ujena 5k Double (3k + 2k), second leg starts one hour 20 minutes after the first leg, and the Kids Cup Double (1 mile + 1/2 mile), second leg starts 30 minutes after the first leg. Times added together for all Doubles for scoring. Now Double Racing is available to everyone!"
Live Music - Food - Double Races for the whole family - and Tons of Fun

Comments from San Jose Double Runners...
"Loved it! So personally challenging and rewarding. A different kind of race than I've seen before. I would do it again in a heartbeat," Taryn Denton.
"Great event! Loved the music, the ambiance, the post race stretching area with foam rollers, food, beverages and masseurs...well done," Jennifer.
"One word...Blast!!! I had an awesome time. It was my first time doing this kind of event. I am really impressed on the way they strategize everything, from the 10k, halftime and then 5k. As big as the event was that day, I didn't feel like I was lost," Gerry Elemento
"Great race overall. I liked the loop course," said Brian Walker.
"Loved this race! The distance is challenging enough and the two-legs version arranges for an intersting twist! This race is for athletes from all levets of fitness...super awesome race and highly recommended!!" stated Garret Brummer.
