Bob Anderson's Kids Cup Mile race is designed for children 10 and under. Race starts at 7:55 am after the Pleasanton Christmas Road Mile concludes. Join us for the events at Double Road Race Pleasanton. Race participants will run two road races (10k + 5k) on the same day. The Double is a unique event created by Bob Anderson, the founder of Runner’s World Magazine which he published for 18 years.
Double Road Racing is a new sport. We like to call it ”The Double.” The first Double Road Race® was held in the United States and drew 1400 runners to Pleasanton, California on Dec 23, 2012. It was a huge success and on that day, a new sport was born. The Double Road Race is a 15k distance race consisting of two legs (10k + 5k) with a halftime in between. It’s new, it’s innovative and the strategies for runners is uniquely different. It’s the only running event with a halftime that features The Recovery Zone. I hope you will join me again in Pleasanton. It was so much fun,” says Bob Anderson, creator of Double Road Running, an avid runner for 51 years and founder and former publisher of Runner’s World magazine for 18 years.
