"Double Racing is a two stage race with a halftime recovery break between the legs. It is a new sport. It is a new challenge for runners and walkers of all abilities." says Double Racing creator Bob Andreson. "I have run over 30 Doubles and I really enjoy having the break. It gives me a chance to recovery, make adjustments and talk to other runners. I really enjoy Double Racing. I think you will too!"
Times for both stages are added together for scoring. During halftime we provide everything you need to recovery. Or bring along your "secret" recovery drink, food or device. The Double is fun, challenging and exciting!
Live Music - Food - Double Races for the whole family - Loads of Fun!
