Run Albion

3 Races, 1 Town


It’s your choice, choose just 1 or 2 events or show Albion who is boss by taking on all 3!

Run Albion’s course will pass through a variety of Albion’s cornerstones including the historic downtown, college, and beautiful parks. Albion’s history is varied including being the home of the Purple Gang, a center for liberal arts study at Albion College and uniquely position along the Kalamazoo river.  Each run will highlight an aspect of Albion’s history, present, and future.


Even though “Run” is in our name, it doesn’t mean our events are only open to runners, quite the contrary.  All of the Run Albion events are open to all ability levels. Choose to run, jog, walk, saunter, skip, stroll or any combination of those ways of moving along the route is just fine with us.  All in all, we just aim for participants to enjoy time together with friends, family, and neighbors.

Run for a Reason

We all know there are plenty of runs and athletic events to participate in across Michigan so we want to make sure the miles you put on your shoes are for a good reason.  Proceeds from each race will benefit a local organization.  The Forks Senior Center, Albion Historical Society and Little Lambs of Jesus Preschool & Child Care Center are three deserving organizations that will be the beneficiaries of proceeds from the Run Albion series.


Run Albion would not be possible without the generous support of area sponsors.  Albion’s local businesses know how to get things done and the Run Albion event is no different.  When you have a moment, give a shout out to our sponsors for their support.
