Reds Race for a Better Community is a timed 5 mile road race and an untimed 2.4 mile walking course. The event is open to anyone who wants to run or walk to raise money for local non-profits who provide important services in Strafford County, and to anyone who just wants to have fun and be a part of the spectacle!

Participants include serious runners, recreational joggers and walkers, individuals, groups, families and community members of all ages and abilities. It’s a challenging and beautiful course and a historic annual event that brings the community together for a great cause and a good time. Reds Race is the third race in the popular Dover Race Series, and it’s a great way to get outside, shake off winter and celebrate Spring.

We are pleased to bring Reds Race back to Dover after a 2 year hiatus due to Covid. Run fast, stay healthy!
