This kick-Off to the 2019 Dover Race Series on March 23 features a 5k race through downtown Dover, NH (9:30 start), then transitions into a Restaurant Crawl with fun and food at local restaurants throughout the downtown (11am - 3pm.) Do one, do both! Three ticket options are available (run only, crawl only, or both.) 

5k & Pub Crawl Adult: $40, Kids 12 & under: $10,
5K Only: $25

Purchase a special race shirt for $15 during registration. Race packets and pub crawl bracelets can be picked up at pre-registration on Friday night at the Dover Transportation Center from 5-8 PM and on the day of the race. Registration opens at 8:00am.

The pub crawl event will start immediately after the race at 11 am and feature a taste of food for crawl participants at each establishment. Drinks are not included in the ticket price.
