Introducing for 2019 ~ the Cochecho 5K!
Join us August 31st for the inaugural running of the Cochecho 5k. This family-friendly event will be run in tandem with the Cochecho Half Marathon. Come check out Dover's quaint walking trail as part of this flat race. Just like the Half Marathon, the race begins on historic Silver Street lined with Victorian houses. The race courses split on Washington Street where 5K runners will get their own personal tour of the walking trail. This paved path is a rail-to-trail that exits in the heart of Dover's tree-lined neighborhoods. Runners will finish in the church parking lot where the festivities will heat up. Welcome the Cochecho Half Marathon winners past the finish line and join with them for a celebratory beer! This event has something for everybody including walkers, strollers, and ipods.
