Ipswich Ale and the Ipswich Rotary are proud to announce the third "Ipswich Ale 1/2 Marathon". On Saturday, April 28th, 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 sells out every year so you'll need to get on board early! Individual entry $55 until March 31 then $65 April 1.
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.
