GCV&M 5K Fundraiser: Race Through History

May 19, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

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

 

The Course

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:
  • Event T-shirt
  • FREE all-day access to the 19th-Century Historic Village, John L. Wehle Art Gallery and Nature Center
  • Chip-timed race results
  • Photo opportunities with staff in historic costume
  • Post-race goodies
  • Donation to Genesee Country Museum to help preserve local history

 

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

Enjoy complimentary post-race goodies, or refuel at our Freight House Pub and Depot Restaurant will breakfast sandwiches and beer. Spend the rest of your day experiencing life in our historic village.

 

Reminders

  • Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome!
  • Check-in and the race begin promptly!
