Join us for the 3rd Annual Pleasanton Double Racing® Festival on December 21st 2014. The Pleasanton Double is a Christmas-themed running event for the entire family that showcases the innovative new sport of Double Racing® and benefits PPIE (Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation).
Pleasanton families and supporters of PPIE are encouraged to participate in the Pleasanton Double. It’s a great opportunity to train and race in preparation for the PPIE Run on April 13th.
Called the Double for short, each Double Racing® event is a two-stage running challenge. It’s “running with a halftime.” Participants first run the longer stage, take a halftime break/recovery period during which runners can ride stationary bikes, stretch, refuel, rehydrate, or simply do anything to get themselves ready for the next stage. Times are combined for scoring.
Depending on your fitness level, the Pleasanton Double Racing® Festival offers runners three unique distance options: A 15K Double (10K + 5K), a shorter 8K Double (5K + 3K) and the 1 ½ Mile Kids’ Cup Double (1 Mile + 1/2 Mile).
Double Racing® was created by Bob Anderson, the founder of Runner’s World magazine. The Pleasanton Double Racing® Festival will also feature live music, food, a Santa Runner contest, Most Fit Team/Company and tons of healthy fun for the entire family.
