Do you like free ice cream? If you want a lot of it, you can do the Super Nova at the Pengelly Double Dip this year. That means you do the long course before the actual start and then you run it again with the race. Only two people have done it thus far, John Hart and Randy Tanner. Are you as tough as these guys? Anyone who completes the double, Double Dip gets a free Super Nova from the Big Dipper.

About Dave Pengelly: The Double Dip run would have been a favorite event for Dave because it combined many of the things he adored: Mount Sentinel, where he had hiked since early childhood; strenuous outdoor activity; and an opportunity to enjoy, tease, and probably harass his beloved friends. Throughout his life Dave poured his incredible energy into enjoying the outdoors, especially the mountains and all manner of mountain sports. He loved to share those passions with his many friends, family members, and his younger brother in the Big Brothers and Sisters program. He also supported various organizations that fought to preserve his favorite wild areas. Dave died June 13, 2003, in a mountain climbing accident in the North Cascades in Washington. The speakers at his memorial service, without design, presented a combined sermon on Dave's message to them, a message reinforced by the Double Dip run: get out there and live! The race began as a fund-raiser organized by the staff of the Missoula Youth Homes. The race is now organized by Run Wild Missoula, which encourages entrants to contribute generously to Missoula Youth Homes.
