Ipswich Ale Half Marathon!!

Saturday, April 28, 2018

Start/Finish at Crane Beach, Ipswich, MA

8:00 am start



The Ipswich Rotary and Ipswich Ale are excited to announce the third annual Ipswich Ale Half Marathon!

Don’t miss this fun race on one of the prettiest courses you’ll ever run! The Ipswich Ale Half Marathon starts and finishes at beautiful Crane Beach in Ipswich, MA. Runners climb up and around the beautiful Crane Estate - “Storming the Castle!” - in the first mile before heading west on Argilla Road past open farmland, picturesque salt marshes and classic New England stone walls. The course winds through scenic neighborhoods along the Ipswich River before runners turn around and head back to Argilla Road and the final four miles to the finish line.

Hosted by the Ipswich Rotary, the Ipswich Ale Half Marathon would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors, partners and many volunteers. We are grateful for the extensive support of our partners at the Trustees of Reservations, Ipswich YMCA and North Shore Physicians Group. We also want to thank our principle sponsors — Ipswich Ale and the Institution for Savings - for all that they do to make this race a success. Proceeds from the race support local scholarships, including the YMCA’s Gerry Beauchamp Memorial Camp Scholarship Fund, and other local Rotary initiatives.

Don’t wait to register - The field is limited and this race has sold out in just weeks each of the past two years!
