New Running = Double Running...Running With a Halftime!

A brand new International sport has been created - Double Running®, - A single two stage race with a half time break between the stages.  It is a world class and family fun new running sport.

Double Running®, double for short, participants first run the longer stage, take a halftime break and then run the second stage. Times are combined for scoring.    


The DRRF (Double Road Race Federation and governing body of Double Racing)  is looking for sharp inspiring people who can help us develop Double Running® throughout the United States and around the world.

The sport of Double Running® governing body is the DRRF (Double Road Race Federation).  Bob Anderson, founder of Runner's Magazine and lifetime runner, is the DRRF chairman.  All rules and regulations are set and approved by its board of directors.  All statistics and records are verified and maintained by the DRRF.  World record bonus money and leader board prize money of Double Championship races are paid and distributed by the DRRFClick here to meet our DRRF Board of Directors and Staff.

There are six official Double Running® distances and the second leg starts at different intervals.  A participant must complete both legs to get a time.

The restart is the time when the second leg starts from when the first leg started.  The restart can be 30 minutes sooner or later except for the Double Road Race 15k which is fixed (give or take 10 minutes) and the Sprint Double which is fixed.   In all cases the restart must be announced in advance.  On distances from 21k (half-marathon) and longer, slower runners can start early.  (Click here for additional details.)

1. Double Racing®
These are Doubles held on roads or paved bike paths on either out and back or loop courses.  The halftime is situated near the finish line. 

Selected Double Road Races® are part of a championship series.  Currently only the Double 15k has a championship series.  The series offers prize money, the DRRF offers world record bonus money and leader board prize money based on points earned for the series.  Each director who wants their Double 15k to be part of the championship series must contribute to the Leader Board Fund.

The Double Road Race® 15k Championship series was started in 2013.

2. Double Adventure Run®
The second type of Double is the Double Adventure Run®.  These Doubles can be held on different terrains and on more challenging courses.  The courses do not need to be run on certified courses however the distance should be measured by a Garmin or similar device.

All Double Adventure Runs® will be two stage races with a halftime in between.

The length of Double Adventure Runs can vary.  But each have a halftime break between the stages.  The halftime in many cases will be simipler.

3. Double Fun Run
These are Double Running events that can be held on any terrain and can be a theme Double or just a simple Double Running event.  The halftime can be elaborate or as simple as the director wants to put together.

"My name is Bob Anderson.  I live in Los Altos California USA. I have been running for 54 years. In 2012 I ran 50 races, covered 350.8 miles and averaged 6:59 per mile.  A movie A Long Run featuring me was released in August 2014 highlighting my 50-race challenge, starting Runner's World magazine and creating Double Running®.

"In 2012 I founded the Double Road Race Federation (DRRF), which I am the Chairman, says Bob Anderson.

In 1966, at the age of 17, while in high school, Bob started Runner 's World (RW) magazine with $100 and published it for 18 years building paid circulation to 435,000, before selling Runner's World in 1984 revenues had soared to over $25 million.

"When I sold Runner's World to settle a costly divorce, I had to sign a no compete clause, keeping me out of the business of running for five years," Bob said.

"I immediately shifted my focus professionally but I never stopped running.  My love of photography lead me into building a successful swimwear company called Ujena.  Our 32-year-old Ujena family owned business is run daily by my daughter Lisa.

'I am the CEO of Ujena, however much of my time these days is being spent on what I think is going to be my most successful venture ever - the new sport of Double Running®."


Bob Anderson is funding this venture himself with full support from his company Ujena.

The Double Road Race®, Double Racing®, Double Training®, Double Runner®, Double Running and Double Adventure Run® are registered trademarks of the DRRF. 


A director needs to believe in Double Running® and want to help us turn it in a major sport.  "I think our new sport is going to grow into a big sport.  The triathlon was started 41 years ago and now it is a two billion dollar industry," Bob stated.

A director must have enough financial strength to make this happen.  

Beyond this, the requirements of the DRRF are the following:


1. The director needs to pay an annual license fee to the DRRF to secure the rights to hold a Double Running event starting at $300 annually.  ($900 for the Double Road Race (aka Double 15k).

2.  The  director needs to pay a commission for each Double finisher to DRRF. The current rate is $3.00 per finisher.

3. All expenses including production and marketing fees will be paid by the director.

4. All entry fees  and sponsorship sales will go to producer.

We are hoping to add your Double Running® events to our next calendar.
