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!

The field is capped and we expect the race to sell out.  Limited race day registration may be available, but only if the race has not sold out.  Don't wait to register! 


Consistent with widespread road race policy, there will be no refunds, transfer of bibs or deferrals.  

Runner Support

The course and finish line will remain open for 3 hours - until 11:00 AM.  Runners on the course beyond the time limit should not expect to receive timed results or awards and will not be supported by race staff, volunteers or services.

Race T-shirts

Each registered runner will receive a “Storm the Castle!” race t-shirt. Race t-shirts (men's sizes XS - XXL and some women's XL) have already been purchased.
