Four Super FUN
"I loved everything about this race," says Dana Gonzales. "Kudos to the double team for organizing such a well-run fun and unique event which is a breath of fresh air to the running community," says Bertrand Newson.
"Double Racing®, Double for short, is a sport consisting of two-stage running events. 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 a time. The second stage starts 1 hour 45 minutes (restart) after the start of first leg.
