Event Information
About the Event
In conjunction with Dover Days Fair, the 5K and Fun Run are organized and managed by the Dover Sherborn High School Cross Country team.

Come support a great cause in a family-friendly atmosphere and enjoy the Dover Days Fair after your race.

Walkers and strollers are welcome in the 5K event.
The Fun Run (ages 3-9) goes off at 10:00 in front of the American Legion.

The 5K (ages 8-infinity) goes off at 10:30, also in front of the American Legion.
The races begin and end on Dedham Street in front of the American Legion. We debuted a new, safer 5K course in 2017 and will continue with this course which runs on the right side of all roads (except for the finish line stretch). You can view the course here:

The Fun Run (for ages 3-9) is a short loop of about one-third of a mile on roads around the Dover Town Hall green. This run is on closed roads and is led by a police cruiser. Members of the cross country team run with the kids to keep them on track. Participants run through a \"funnel\" of cross country athletes at the end.
A unique wooden \"medal\" (created by one of our team members) for the top 2 runners in each age group:
14 and under, 15-19 years, 20-29 years, 30-39 years, 40-49 years, 50-59 years, 60+
Results for the 5K
