Sad News! Cancellation of the Race!


Due to the extremely low signups for this year’s race, we have had to cancel. We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused to you.

This year is the first year of the Dover Road Race series, which is a commitment to run 7 of 11 races in Dover. The series is wildly popular, with over 1000 people signing up for the series. We are very happy for the DRRS success.

However, many runners told me they couldn’t run my race this year because they were signed up for the DRRS. Therefore our signups are way below targets, and below the numbers needed for a viable race.

The buddy ball league is still going strong, and will start a new season in May. For more info, please go to http://www.howiesfieldofdreams.com/

Island Windjammers – A New Major Sponsor!

Island Windjammers

We have just added a new Major Sponsor to our Race – Island Windjammers! This Sailing cruise company offers sailing vacations aboard a variety of multi-masted sailing ships traveling the Windward Islands of Carriacou, Union Island, Bequia, Tobago Cays and Mayreau, and also the Leeward Islands — Anguilla, St. Kitts, Nevis, St. Barts and St. Eustatius. (sounds good right now, doesn’t it!)

As the snow comes again tomorrow, read this from their website http://www.islandwindjammers.com/ “Face it—you need a vacation; a week or two to decompress and escape the stress and doldrums of everyday life. We’ve been there, and we know just what you need….pack a bag and sail away with us, to our islands in the sun.”
