Organiser's Description

“The Rock” is at the center of Albion College’s campus located on the Quad.  The Run the Rock event passes right by and even though you’ll be going by so fast to see how many layers of paint make the rock what it is today, you’ll be able to feel the history that each layer brings to what makes Albion College special.
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 2022 Run Albion donated over $3,000 across four different nonprofits. As a participant in Run Albion, you can know that you're making an impact in our community. 
Entry fee: Fee is $25 until Thursday, 4/25. Fee is $40 on race day with no shirt guarantee
5K Run/Walk. The 5K is open to strollers and dogs. Kids Fun Run is free.
5k Special pricing: Students 18 and under $10 discount off entry fee. Applied automatically during checkout.
Packet Pickup: 5:00pm to 6:00pm 
Race Start: 6:30pm 
RUN THE ROCK AWARDS
This year, all participants will receive a finisher medal.  Awards will also be given to the top 5 men and top 5 women overall for the individual events.  Points will be awarded to all Run the Rock participants, which will be used to determine series awards.  
SERIES SCORING AWARDS
When you participate in Run Albion events, you're eligible for series awards when you participate in two out of the three events.  For detailed scoring information, visit, runalbion.com
The race will be professionally chip-timed by the Michigan Running Foundation. Results will be posted during the race on this site.
VIRTUAL 5K RUN/WALK
If you cannot make the Run Albion series events in person, but you would still like to participate and support the local non-profits that are beneficiaries of Run Albion's proceeds, you can complete the Virtual Run Albion series! A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the road, or the trail, or the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. All participants will receive a medal! 
What: This is a virtual race, so you choose your own course and time yourself.
When: Complete your race any time during race weekend, April 24, 25, or 26.  Medals and other race swag will ship by Friday May 17, 2024.
Where: You choose the course, and you time yourself.  Text your results using the link provided when you signed up, and that will be your official time.
Why: You want to participate because you love Albion as much as we do; you can't always be in Albion in person.
Cost: The price is $25 and includes a finishers' medal and t-shirt. 
Series Awards: Virtual participants are not eligible for series awards, and there will not be a virtual series category.  It is important to note if you participate in 2 in-person events and 1 virtual event, you'll be eligible for IN-PERSON SERIES AWARD.
