We are back!  Don’t miss this popular 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!
Hosted by the Ipswich-Rowley Rotary Club, the Ipswich Ale Half Marathon would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors, partners and dozens of volunteers.  Proceeds from the race go to the Ipswich Rotary Charitable Trust to support our high school scholarships in Ipswich and Rowley, and other community service projects.  
We want to thank our principal sponsors – Ipswich Ale Brewery, the Institution for Savings, and BankGloucester – for all that they do to make this race a success.  We also want to express our gratitude to the Trustees of Reservations and the Ipswich YMCA for their extensive support.
