Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
About the Double Dipsea
First held in 1970, the Walt Stack DSE Double Dipsea is a not just another tough trail run. It's a sadistically designed race, intended to test your patience and your perseverance and reward those most able to overcome adversity and leave defeated those unable to adapt. Walt Stack, founder of Dolphin South End Runners Club (DSE) considered it his favorite race and it eventually took his name to honor and remember him.
For 44 years, the Double Dipsea was managed by volunteers from the DSE. With the growing popularity of the race, increasing demands from the many permitting agencies and several key volunteers retiring, the DSE volunteers were no longer able to manage this race on their own. In 2013, to ensure the Double Dipsea would live on and be given the attention and care it deserves, the DSE partnered with Brazen Racing, a Bay Area race management organization. The 2016 race represents the third year of Brazen Racing and the DSE working together to bring everyone the Walt Stack Double Dipsea.
