Pending final approval from the appropriate entities below is the course for the 2017 Run Albion series. There will likely be a final tweak to the course for the Forks 5K course to include the newly completed renovation of the downtown brick. If all the stars align and our prayers are answered your feet will be some of the FIRST feet on the new brick main street. How cool is that?
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.
START & FINISH
The course will start and finish on the track at Sprankle-Sprandel Stadium. 410 S Hannah St, Albion, MI 49224
Street parking available on Hannah St. Most parking will be available in Victory Park, just south of the Start & Finish Line.
