Congratulations to our winners of Double Road Race Denver July 21, 2013!
Double Road Race - A new family fun and world class running event!
The Double is one race with two legs - you first run the 10k and then one hour and 45 minutes later the 5k leg starts. "The Double Road Race is the only running event with a halftime," says creator Bob Anderson. Times from the two legs are added together for scoring. "Lets Do The Double together in Denver," says Bob.
Sheri Pfeil recently ran the Overland Park Double (June 30): "Awesome event! I can't wait until the next one. I've already told all my running friends. I PR'd in the 10k AND the 5k. My new favorite race!" Sheri says.
"The Double (recently held in Overland Park Kansas) was awesome! I'm just starting to get into running and training for a half marathon. This was a great event to keep me motivated! I was exhausted by the end but really did enjoy it. I will definitely be signing up for the next one," stated Adriana Tallman.
Denver, the Mile High City! This will be the first Double ever held at altitude, in an area where many elite runners go to take advantage of the training benefits of running at altitude. Tyler McCandless, who just set the Double Road Race world record, is the race director, and the running mecca of Boulder, Colo., is only a short drive away.
The Double is challenging enough, in and of itself, but anyone looking for an extra challenge in running a Double should think of this event, which has all the makings of being a very popular competition in a Rocky Mountain High area with seemingly an endless number of runners.
This Double will be run in one of Denver’s most attractive parks with dramatic views of the pristine Rocky Mountains!
