Two Great Runs to Finish off 2014!

This has been a tremendous race season, and we thank YOU ALL for joining us this year! In December, we conclude 2014 by providing race chip timing and results for two outstanding events in the San Francisco East Bay:

The San Ramon Bah Humbug 5K Run/ Walk, held on Saturday morning, December 6, with a 9:00 a.m. start for all participants. Be sure to note the new start and finish location: The San Ramon Community Center, 12501 Alcosta Blvd., San Ramon. (This is the very same start/finish area and 5K course used in the annual 4th of July Run San Ramon. The course is flat, fast, and fun! 
Online preregistration for the Bah Humbug will be closing, midnight, December 3, but race-day registration will be available, beginning at 7:30 a.m. 
For additional information, contact the San Ramon Parks and Recreation Department, via email or phone 925-973-3200.

The 3rd Annual Pleasanton Double Racing Festival, will be held on the morning of December 21, at Hart Middle School, 4433 Willow Road, Pleasanton. The Pleasanton Double offers runners three unique distance options. A 15K Double (10K + 5K), a shorter 8K Double (5K + 3K), and also the 1.5 Mile Kids Cup Double (1 Mile + .5 Mile). The first two events start at 8:15 a.m., with the Kids Cup Double kicking off at 10:45 a.m.

The Pleasanton Double is Christmas themed running event for the entire family, and showcases the innovative new sport of Double Racing.  This event is a two stage running challenge. It’s “running with a halftime."  Participants first run the longer stage, take a halftime break, a recovery period during which runners can ride stationary bikes, stretch, jog, perform yoga or resistance exercises, refuel, rehydrate, or simply lie down with their feet up against a wall, anything to ready their legs for the next stage. Times are combined for scoring. Participants must complete both stages to get a result. 

Preregistration can be made at their Website. Save $5.00 on the 15K Double when using the Promo Code: PTOWN. For more information about the Pleasanton Double Racing Festival, go to their contact Web page.
