Lace up and get ready for the area's newest trail run!

Lace up and get ready for the area's newest trail run!

Make history while preserving history! Calling ALL runners and walkers – lace up your sneaks and join GCV&M for our 5K on Saturday, May 19.

The Course

Speed along our groomed 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 winding woods with gravel byways amid our historic buildings, creating a route that is as safe and pastoral as it is challenging. Our race is the only one in the world that starts by firing a 100 pound anvil high into the air!


Dress for Time Travel

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. Snap a photo with our staff in historic costume before or after the race. And if that isn’t enough fun, we’ll even offer a prize for best costume!


After the Finish Line

Refuel with complimentary post-race refreshments as you await our awards ceremony. We will present prizes for "Best Costume," "Fastest Youth" (under 12), "Fastest Female" and "Fastest Male." Prizes include gift certificates to the Flint Hill Store, pottery created by GCV&M's master potter, and copies of Genesee Country Village & Museum Official Guidebook. Then, spend the rest of your day experiencing life in our historic, 19th-century village.
