Run for Amy 2019

The third annual Run for Amy Memorial Trail Race will be along the beautiful landscape Appleton Farms in Ipswich, MA. The race, in memory of Amy DiAdamo Foster, is meant to celebrate her life through embracing her passions of both running and spending time outdoors. Equally as important to Amy was the opportunity to gather friends and host a great party so don’t plan on leaving after your race, as music, food and libations are part of the festivities! The race is intended to be casual – running through the trails of Appleton Farms, a mix of single track trails and dirt roads, with some beautiful views along the way. We wouldn’t really be honoring Amy’s memory if there wasn’t some form of competition involved… prizes awarded for top adult & child 5K/10K finishers.
