Make history while preserving history! Calling ALL runners and walkers – lace up your sneaks and join GCV&M for our inaugural 5K Fundraiser: Race Through History on Saturday, May 20!
Speed along our winding nature trails to beat your best time. Challenge co-workers and family members to join you in some fitness for a good cause. Power walk with your friends while taking in scenic views of our historic village. GCV&M’s exclusive on-site course combines groomed nature trails through our virgin forest with gravel byways amid our historic buildings, creating a route that is as safe and pastoral as it is challenging.
Your entry fee includes:
By all means strap on your iPod, don your yoga pants and break out the high-tech footwear, but we hope you’ll also come prepared to travel back in time with us. Come dressed as your favorite historical character, or add some old-fashioned touches so you blend in with our 19th-century village. And if that isn’t enough fun, we’ll even offer a prize for best costume!
Snap a photo with our staff in historic costume at the finish line, then head over to the Exhibition Barn. Enjoy post-race goodies and smooth jams prior to our awards ceremony. Once you’ve refueled at our Freight House Pub and Depot Restaurant, spend the rest of your day experiencing life in our historic 19th-century village.
