Promoting the Sport on all sides of the Finish Line

The Albany Running Exchange is our community running organization through which we facilitate over 2,000 group runs annually. We also manage the ARE's 15 week Summer Trail Run Series, direct several races and an adult Trail Running Camp, along with sponsor a racing team.
