Route information
The 1,940-acre Baylands Preserve is one of the largest tracts of undisturbed marshland remaining in the San Francisco Bay with miles of multi-use trails providing access to a unique mixture of tidal and fresh water habitats.
This 8k is a two stage road and trail run (5k + Halftime + 3k) across a flat and fast course.
There is also a UjENA 5k and UjENA 10k on offer.
The Double
Now comes a new sport and a new competition for runners that’s as cerebral as it is physical. The Double does not involve running two races in one day. Rather, it is a distance race run in two segments, with a recovery break in between.
An integral part of the Double Road Race® is the Halftime featuring the Recovery Zone.
While competitors can do whatever they want during the time between the finish of the 10K and the start of the 3K, a formal Recovery Zone is provided where competitors can get everything from nutrition and hydration to massage, exercise equipment (to help you stay loose) and various other forms of physical therapy.
The Recovery Zone also serves as a social environment for competitors to meet and greet fellow runners.

Double Road Race Federation
Double Road Race Federation® was created by Bob Anderson in the summer of 2010. Seven small events were staged by Ujena Fit Club in Mexico between Oct 2010 and Oct 2012 called the Bob Anderson 15k Challenge. Bob participated in each event to refine and develop this new sport called the Double Racing. The Double is a world class and family fun event. Runners of all abilities participated in the first Double. You too can do the DOUBLE!!!!

Did the race in 2019
rainy day run caused a 5ish minute delay, but spirits and enthusiasm remained high (excepting one bare chested runner who seemed let the staff and the rest of us know he had other places to be).
Did the race in 2019
Great race. I actually did the 10K and the 5K and was lucky to have enough time in between races (but not too much) to do both. I know some people missed the 5K turnaround but I thought the course was marked fine. Despite it being a wet day with plenty of puddles to run through, it was a good atmosphere and a positive experience.
Did the race in 2019
First of all, I think the weather made it worst for the organizers, lots of volunteers didn't show up due to the weather. Pros: The track is awesome, completely flat with very minor downhill for some time, the medals are nice quality, top three in age category is always good as everyone loves those medals. Cons: They should have different medals for second and third place winners, and the winner's medal should say age group or at least winner on the medal not on the ribbon. There was no volunteer on the food counter, they had banana, chips, water, they should have some electrolyte, oranges too. The marking of the turns should have been better, 5k turn for first leg, 3k turn for second leg were marked with only one arrow which was almost not visible, there should have been some kind of flag stating the turning points. A lot of people switched the races later which made the award decision seem shady (most likely it was accurate it just seemed they didn;t know exactly).
