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.
