A New Sport and Running Event Hits the Roads of America
Date:5/15/2013

(PRWEB) May 15, 2013

An innovative running competition and brand new sport is hitting the roads of America this summer.

The Double Road Race is a distance race consisting of two segments or legs – a 10-kilometer road run, followed by a five-kilometer road run, with a short rest break in between, order of finish determined by best combined or aggregate time.

Bob Anderson created and conceived the Double Road Race. He is the founder and former publisher of Runner’s World magazine, as well as a lifelong runner. At the age of 17, Bob started the magazine and built it to a circulation of 435,000 before selling it to Rodale Press in 1984. In 2012, at age 64, he ran 50 races (350.8 miles) to celebrate his 50 years as a runner, averaging 6:59 per mile. He placed first in his age group in 31 of these races, which ranged from 2 miles to the half marathon.

Bob envisioned a running event “that was something like the triathlon, only different.” The result was the Double, a two-stage race where competitors don’t switch from swimming to cycling to running, they just run!

“The Double is the only distance running event with a halftime,” Bob says of his creation. He also emphasizes that the Double is not two races in one day, as some might think, but one race consisting of two segments or legs. There is, of course, a world of difference between the two concepts in terms of pacing.

Competitors in the Double Road Race run the 10-kilometer leg first, then 1 hour, 45 minutes after the start of the 10K they toe the starting line of the concluding 5K leg. Runners have the option of spending the in-between rest break in an area called the Recovery Zone, where competitors are provided everything from hydration and nutrition to physical therapy and exercise equipment to keep their legs from stiffening up.

The race is an infinitely more strategically oriented running event than a regular race – so much so t
