The Double Black Difference

A note from our founder

First off, welcome to Double Black Events.  We are grateful to have you here and hope to see you at our next event.  The purpose of forming Double Black Events was to create outdoor trail events that were unlike anything anyone has ever experienced.  We are a team of members from a variety of professional backgrounds such as corporate customer experience, entrepreneurship, trail running, Crossfit, graphic design, and user-experience design.  Our goal as a team is to provide you with an unforgettable challenge and experience that will be different than anything you've done before.


Our promise is to provide you with a great experience from the moment you find our website to the moment you finish an event.  To help us deliver on such a promise, we have a few value propositions as a company that I'd like to share with you:


-Each event must provide a brand new experience, even if you've raced with us before.  No repeat courses.


-The environment of an event must be supportive, positive, tough, and fun.

-Top technology integrated into each outdoor event to make the experience as immersive as possible for both athlete and spectator (Live tracking, Live leaderboards at the venue, check in/check out, etc.)


-The price of entry must be 110% worth it.  We meet and then exceed your expectations in every way.


-Best customer support in the industry.  There's no such thing as a bad question or concern.  We are here to help and hear you.


-Courses are easy to follow and extremely well marked.  (It is a personal pet peeve of mine when trail events are poorly marked)

-Festival areas that are fun and exciting for the whole family.  We want spectators to enjoy their time just as much as participants enjoy the race.

So there you have it.... a little look into what we focus on as a team in order to provide you with a top-notch event.  I personally welcome you to the Double Black family and look forward to seeing you out on the course.  For now, it's time for you and me to work hard and get ready for the next event!

-Zach Jarvis, Founder and CEO
