Double Road Race

The innovative new sport of Double Racing is coming back to Hacienda on December 20th, 2015 for the 4th Annual Pleasanton Double Racing Festival. The Pleasanton Double will wind through Hacienda and benefits local schools in the Pleasanton area. 

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 four unique distance options: a 15K double (10K + 5K), a shorter 8K Double (5K + 3K), 1 1/2 Mile Kids' Cup Double (1 mile + 1/2 mile) and the Take a Double Hike (5.5 mile, 3.3m + 2.2m). Participants first run the longer stage, take a halftime break/recovery period during which runners can ride stationary bikes, get a massage, 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.
