DOVER — The 2022 Dover Race Series, underwritten by Mass General Brigham Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, finished its 15th year with 261 registered participants across 10 races, hosting more than 2,100 runners from March to November. Many runners have participated since the inception of the series in 2008.

Registered DRS participants who complete six out of 10 races each season qualify for a free custom race series jacket.
