Double Road Race

The innovative new sport of Double Racing is coming back to Hacienda on December 21st for the 3rd Annual Pleasanton Double Racing Festival. The Pleasanton Double will wind through Hacienda and benefits Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation (PPIE).

About the Double
The Double is a two-stage running challenge; like running a race with a halftime break in between. 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 1/2 Mile Kids' Cup Double (1 mile + 1/2 mile). 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. Winners are decided based on the best aggregate time. The Double was created by Bob Anderson, the founder of Runner’s World magazine, and an avid runner for 50 years.
