Dover, NH, January 23, 2023 – The 2022 Dover Race Series, underwritten by Mass General Brigham Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, finished its 15th year with 261 registered participants across ten races hosting over 2100 runners from March to November. The Dover Race Series appreciates the continued dedication of our runners, many of whom have participated since the inception of the DRS in 2008.

Registered DRS participants who complete six out of ten races each season qualify for a free custom race series jacket. This year’s DRS jacket pickup will take place on Monday, February 13 at Cinco de Mayo in downtown Dover between 4pm - 7pm. Any qualified registrants who cannot pickup their jacket on February 13 will be able to claim their jacket at the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce after that date until April 1, 2023.

The Dover Race Series recognizes the accomplishments of a select few runners who stand out in each category with best overall timing across all races.
