About This Activity

Each event will start on Waldingfield Road & each route is unique.  Walkers are assured of a leisurely stroll, or hike, on relatively flat trails through the woods, across fields and beside the Ipswich River.  Runners compete against the clock and can find the eclectic combination of pavement, trail and country road to be both scenic and challenging.  One would be hard pressed to find another race course that encompasses the beauty of Appleton Farms: the route winds its way past grazing cows, through lush forest, down rolling hills, past split-rail fences & aged stone walls and over a wooden bridge.  Photos of Appleton Farms & the exact course routes can be viewed online at www.ipswichrotary5k.com

 This is not your average day at the races!  Rotary has put together a festive tented area for kids and parents.  While the trees rustle about you in the summer breeze, the kids can enjoy face painting, walk, sack races, balloons and demonstrations.  Grab a cold soft drink and a hot dog while the kids (12 and under) are off running in their very own road race-every child who finishes gets their own ribbon.  The scheduled events are constantly being updated online at www.ipswichrotary5k.com.  So be sure to check it out!
