NEW CHALLENGE: Two races in one day, are you in?

NEW CHALLENGE: Two races in one day, are you in?

Perhaps the most unique aspect of the Double, for race directors who want to attract sponsors and for runners who want more time to socialize, is the halftime concept. Halftime gives participants a chance to get a massage, or stay loose on a stationary bike, or buy a new pair of compression socks. Runners also find that a 5K is no easy thing after a rest period that is much longer than an interval workout but much shorter than a two-a-day. (The 15K event has 1 hour, 45 minutes between the start of each leg.) "It's a good idea to give your all in the 10K," Kefalas says. "You can't make up [a deficit] very easily in the 5K. At halftime, you're rolling and stretching, then realize, 'Oh, I've got to go out there again.' That element of not being as easy as you expected is a great way to challenge yourself."
