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 2019 Run Albion donated nearly $3,000 across five different nonprofits. In fact, one donation made by Run Albion doubled the organizations operating budget for the entire year!
