As if that weren’t awesome enough, runners 21+ get two tasty craft beer from our friends at Ipswich Ale Brewery! The best part? It’s all included with your registration!

The Karaoke Party

You might never win any money finishing in the top three at a race, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a champion of another kind!

The Rules:

• Each performance is limited to six people max.
