Christmas Double 8k Runner
Show your Christmas spirit. Come dressed in costume and run, walk or hike in a Santa outfit. Prizes to the top three individual or groups. We will give each participant a Santa Hat. The fastest male and female (must wear more than just a Santa hat) in the Ujena Double 8k will win a $100 Ujena gift certificate.

"Double Racing, Double for short, is a sport consisting of two-stage running events. Participants first run the longer stage, take a halftime break and then run the second stage. Times are combined for scoring. Participants must complete both stages to get a time. The second stage starts 1 hour 45 minutes (restart) after the start of first leg.

For the Double Road Race 15k 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. For the Ujena Double 8k you first run the 5k leg and then one hour 45 minutes later the 3k leg starts. Bring the kids (13 and under) for the Bob Anderson's Kids Cup Double 1.5 Mile (1 mile + 1/2 mile starts 30 minutes later).

Both San Juan Bautista Doubles will start on the historic main street and finish in front of the Mission San Juan Bautista.

The Halftime featuring the recovery zone will be situated in the large grassy area in front of the historic mission where Spanish soldiers and Native Americans camped in the 1800s. Live music will keep us entertained from 7:00am to 12pm

Our Double Road Race events benefit JustRun youth running programs, and other non-profits such as the Wounded Warrior Project and Running Hearts.
