2017 course

Based on our information as of August 31st, we are not planning to run on the new brick portion of Superior Street.  Due to Varsity Football Practice at Albion College, we are shifting our start and finish line for the final Run Albion event of the 2017 season, the Forks 5K.

The 10K course will be two loops of the 5K course.


The course will consist of road running, some paved bike/walking path running, sidewalk running through the Albion College campus and a brief bit of gravel.


The course will start and finish in front of the Victory Park Band Shell.   This link will take you directly to the Victory Park Band Shell in Google Maps. Victory Park is East of Hanna St. between Erie St. and Albion Rd. Below are two maps that show the same Start and Finish line but the second image shows the start line in reference to Interstate 94.



Street parking available on Hannah St. Most parking will be available in Victory Park.

Following the driveway behind the businesses, past the farmers market to a RIGHT on Cass street. They will then follow Cass street up to the corner of the college where they will merge onto the college walkway through the middle of the campus Quad. From there they will pass the Rock, up back to Hannah.
