DOUBLE ROAD RACE SAN JUAN BAUTISTA
A new running event is coming to San Juan Bautista CA Sept 28...
This is one race with two legs. You first run the 10k leg and then one hour and 45 minutes later the 5k leg starts. Times from the two legs are combined for scoring. If you are not ready to DO THE DOUBLE, then join us for the Ujena 5k Mission run/walk. Bring the kids (13 and under) for the Bob Anderson's Kids Cup Mile.
The San Juan Bautista Double will start on the historic main street and finish in front of the Mission San Juan Bautista.
The Recovery Zone will be situated in the large grassy area in front of the historic mission where Spanish soldiers and Native Americans had camped in the 1800s.
The garlic and artichoke mecca of the country, this area provides a grand tour into California’s earliest historical beginnings, which means there is so much to experience in and around this Double, which surely ranks as one of the most unique runs in the country.
When & Where
Double Road Race Federation
A running visionary and innovator, Bob Anderson founded Runner’s World at age 17 with $100 to invest and a dream to base it on. Already an addicted runner, he wanted to see a running publication that would not only appeal to him, but would carry articles which he could read to help his own running. He published the magazine for 18 years before selling it in 1984 after it reached a paid circulation of more than 435,000.
His creation of the Double Road Race®, at a time when road races are more popular than ever before, marks his renaissance in the running world. First there was Runner’s World, now there is the Double Road Race™ and the new sport of Double Road Racing. The initial impact of the Double is similar to the impact the magazine had when he first started it in 1966. Time will tell how big this idea ultimately becomes, but all signs are promising to say the least.
