Your Registration Does More Than Secure Your Spot…
When you register for a Run Albion event you are giving back to the Albion community. With the generous support of our sponsors, we are able to cover the cost of the entire series. Each registration fee is then used as a donation to a local nonprofit organization that provides course volunteers. In 2022 Run Albion donated over  $3,000 across five different nonprofits. You continue to make an impact in the Albion community with each and every race. 

5K Run/Walk.  The 5K is open to strollers and dogs. Due to the rolling start, we will not have a Kids Fun Run for this event. 

5k Special pricing: Students 18 and under $10 discount off the entry fee. Applied automatically during checkout.

Check-In: 5pm to 6:00 PM

Be sure to pre-register for the race! Race day registration is limited and there is a price increase. 

Start Time: All runners and walkers will start at 6:30pm 

The race will be professionally timed by the Michigan Running Foundation. Your accurate chip time and current overall and age group place will be texted to your phone and live on this site. Results will be posted online at Runmichigan.com

If you cannot make the Run Albion series events in person, but you would still like to participate and support the local non-profits that are beneficiaries of Run Albion's proceeds, you can complete the Virtual Run Albion series! A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the rod, or the trail, or the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. All participants will receive a medal! 

What: This is a virtual race, so you choose your own course and time yourself.

When: Complete your race any time on or before June 24th. Medals will ship by July 12, 2021.. 

Where: You choose the course and you time yourself.  Text your results using the link provided when you signed up and that will be your official time.

Why: You want to participate because you love Albion as much as we do, you just can't always be in Albion in person.

Cost: The price is $25 and includes a finishers medal and race swag. 

Series Awards: There will be no series awards for participants in virtual races. If you participate in 2 in-person events and 1 virtual event, you'll be eligible for in-person series awards.
