Harwich Half Marathon
Apr 5 all-day

The Harwich half marathon is being organised by Harwich Runners and the Rotary Club of Harwich & Dovercourt, to commemorate the Mayflower 400 celebrations. The route will take part of the original course from 1982, when the tradition first began. The race has not been organised since 1991, and so Harwich Runners hope to create a festival-style atmosphere to make sure the event goes with a bang.

Harwich Ale Trail 2020
Apr 30 – May 4 all-day

The 2020 Ale Trail will be the fifth in its Springtime slot and happily coincides with the Mayflower 400 celebrations. We hope to make the 2020 Harwich Ale Trail a truly special event!
If you haven’t been before – think of it as a five day beer and cider festival across multiple venues in a one square mile area. The past venues have included pubs, cafes, restaurants, a hotel and a sailing club. We’ll announce the 2020 venues in nearer the date..

There’s one beer list for the whole event, complete with a map and information. Public transport is very close with buses and trains stopping within 200m of one of the venues!
