Dover Race Series Registration

The DRS provides community runners free registration for eligibility in an overall series achievement structure that awards race participation in a variety of ways. Those who complete a minimum of six 5k races in a calendar year qualify for a Dover Race Series season performance race jacket. Additionally, the DRS point system compiles each registrant's race times from all races and establishes a global series ranking for overall performance and top winners are rewarded among the various runner classes.

How It Works

The Series consists of 10 races. Registered participants completing 6 out of 10 5k races will receive a series jacket. Runners 14 and under age will be determined by their age on Jan 1, 2022.

Each race has a point value for each gender. First place finisher will receive 100 points with each finisher after receiving points based on percentage of winning time (If the winner ran the race in 15 min and you run it in 30 min you would receive 50 points Formula = [Your Time / Winning Time] X100. If a runner runs more than the 7 races their top 7 scores will be used for the final tally.
