    Piping Plover 5K with Barefoot Runner Division

    Ipswich — The Trustees of Reservations, in partnership with New England Barefoot Runners, invite the public to participate in their first Piping Plover 5K run Saturday, Sept. 7 at Crane Beach in Ipswich.
    The beach gate opens at 6:30 a.m., registration begins at 7 a.m., and the race starts at 8 a.m.

    Runners of all ages are welcome, barefoot or with sneakers, to race along the shoreline at low tide.
    Pre-registration fee is $25, $30 same-day registration, with a T-shirt included.

    There will be prizes for top male and female barefoot runners and top male and female traditional runners. Refreshments will be provided at the finish.

    Crane Beach, part of the Trustees’ 2,100-acre Crane Estate, is among the world’s most important nesting sites for the piping plover, a federally protected species that was nearly hunted to extinction in the 19th century for its eggs and feathers. Shorebird monitoring is an ongoing effort for the Trustees as they manage the beach for both recreation and conservation — people and ecology. All Piping Plover 5K event proceeds will support the Trustees of Reservations Shorebird Monitoring Program.
