DOUBLE RACING...Running with a halftime
For the Double Road Race 15k you first run the 10k leg and then one hour and 45 minutes later the 5k leg starts. Times from the two legs are combined for scoring. For the Ujena Double 5k you first run the 3k leg and then one hour 20 minutes later the 2k leg starts. Bring the kids (13 and under) for the Bob Anderson's Kids Cup Double 1.5 Mile (1 mile + 1/2 mile starts 30 minutes later).
The San Juan Bautista Double will start on the historic main street and finish in front of the Mission San Juan Bautista.
The Halftime featuring the recovery zone will be situated in the large grassy area in front of the historic mission where Spanish soldiers and Native Americans camped in the 1800s. Two bands (Sweet HayaH and The Inciters) and one DJ (Twelvz) will keep us entertained from 7:00am to 2pm.
"Double Racing® is the only running event with a halftime (photo left). This gives runners a chance to make adjustments and get ready for the seond leg," says Bob Anderson, who created the new sport Double Racing.
"We have really cool shirts (above), double-sided finishing medals for all Double finishers, large medals to the top five in each age group, and $3,350 of cash prizes, plus special prizes for the Double 15k, Ujena Double 5k, and Kids Cup Double 1.5 mile races." San Juan Bautista race director Daniel Lowell
"If you are not ready to do the Double 15k, you can run or walk the Ujena Double 5k Run/Walk and brings the kids for the Bob Anderson's Kids Cup Double. All kids get a medal, and this all benefits youth running," says Race Director Daniel Lowell.
Bob Anderson's Kids Cup Double 1.5 Mile - (for kids 13 and under) everyone gets a t-shirt, tote bag and all finishers a medal. Trophy for first boy and first girl. Special medal for winner of each age 4-13.
Bring the family and enjoy music by Sweet Hayah and while eating at our delicious, BBQ feast - part of the Double Road Race weekend celebration.
