Make history while preserving history! Calling ALL runners and walkers – lace up your sneaks and join GCV&M for their 5K.
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.

- FREE admission to the 19th-Century Historic Village, John L. Wehle Art Gallery and Nature Center for the remainder of the day
- Chip-timed race results

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!
Enjoy complimentary post-race goodies, or refuel at our Freight House Pub and Depot Restaurant with breakfast sandwiches and beer. Spend the rest of your day experiencing life in our historic village. Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome!
