"Great event! What a pleasure to have Billy Mills at the finish line giving high-fives and congratulating all the finishers. I will definitely be back next year," says Bryan Johnson.
"I loved the Double," says Cindy. "It was a very fun race. I plan to do it again," says Abel. "Will I run it again?...In a heartbeat!" stated Tim. "I loved every minute of it. This is a very unique event that I feel would be appealing to runners of all levels," said Tyson. "Really enjoyed the recovery zone," stated Kevin.
Only the second Double Road Race (10k + 5k) ever held in America, it’s altogether fitting that the location is Overland Park, Kan., where Bob Anderson, creator of the Double, was raised.
The Overland Park area is known for the luscious colors that give the town its beauty. The course for this race features clean, wide roads shaded over by trees that hovered over the campgrounds of soldiers during the Civil War and Native American settlements of the Colonial American era. Overland Park has consistently ranked in the top 10 of the 100 Best Cities to Live in the United States, and now it hosts the Double Road Race.
