The Scene

We are very honored and excited to bring this trilogy of running events to the community as the official event management team for the Run Albion events. This event is owned by Caster Concepts Inc. 

Historic Downtown Albion Michigan, home of Albion College. This 5k & 10k trilogy will take you in and around historic Albion. Start/Finish and Registration location will be at Victory Park near the Band Shelter. In case of inclement weather, please be advised we may move our location to the big pavilion, still within close proximity to the Band Shelter (follow event/registration signs).

The final race in the series this year was slated to start and finish in historic downtown.  However the project on main street will not be completed in time so we will start and finish at Veterans Memorial Park.  Please proceed to the park and follow signs from that point.  

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 positioned along the Kalamazoo River.  Each run will highlight an aspect of Albion's history, present and future.
