The 1/2 Marathon You Don't Want to Miss!

Ipswich Ale and the Ipswich Rotary are proud to announce the inaugural "Ipswich Ale 1/2 Marathon".  On Saturday, May 7th, runners will "Storm the Castle" as they leave Crane Beach, attack the Castle Hill surrounding the Crane Estate, and proceed towards Ipswich River and country roads, until you wind back to the beach.

This event will be limited to a field of 400 in the first year so you'll need to get on board early!

We are grateful to the Trustees of Reservations for their support in this long-distance event, starting and finishing at Crane Beach.

Proceeds will go to the Ipswich Rotary Charitable Trust in support of local high school scholarships.

See our organizer website for more information and FAQs
