Welcome to Harcourts Cooper & Co Run Albany … your chance to run or walk on closed roads around stunning Albany Lakes Civic Park and North Harbour Stadium. Formerly the Albany Lakes Summer Series, Run Albany is a reboot of an old favourite and the Grand Finale of the Harcourts Cooper & Co North Shore Run Series. The course is mostly flat and very fast and distance options are 5k, 10k or 15k for runners and 5k or 10k for walkers. A shorter 2km course is available for the kids. Every finisher of Run Albany receives a beautiful commemorative finisher medal.
Albany Lakes Civic Park
Event base is stunning Albany Lakes Civic Park, a beautiful and tranquil oasis in the heart of Albany’s bustling retail sector. Entrance to the park is directly opposite the main plaza of Westfield Albany. The entrance is the perfect spot to view the two water catchment lakes, bisected by the centrepiece of the park, the Art Bridge – a feature of all race distances.
North Shore Run Series Grand Finale
Run Albany is the Grand Finale of the North Shore Run Series and includes a special presentation for our “Shore Legends” – those who have completed five full North Shore Run Series (or Albany Lakes Summer Series). The “drive for five” will see you called up onto stage with other inductees to receive a beautiful commemorative trophy. Your name, legend number and group photo will also feature on the North Shore Run Series web site. What an achievement!
