The Ipswich Rotary and Ipswich Ale are excited to announce the fourth 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 spectacular 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 and a great post-race party!

New this year!  All runners will receive an Ipswich Ale Half Marathon “Storm the Castle” race t-shirt as part of your registration fee.  In addition to a free beer courtesy of Ipswich Ale and traditional post race bagels and bananas, runners will also get free pizza!

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 want to thank our principle sponsors – Ipswich Ale and the Institution for Savings – for all that they do to make this race a success.  We also want to express our gratitude to the Trustees of Reservations, the Ipswich YMCA and the North Shore Physicians Group for their extensive support.  Proceeds from the race go to the Ipswich Rotary Charitable Trust in support of local high school scholarships and other local charities.

Don’t wait to register – The field is limited and this race has sold out each of the past three years!    Click here to REGISTER!
