Make history while preserving history on the most unique race course around – through nature trails and the Historic Village, all kicked off by firing a 100-pound anvil high into the air! Whether you’re running or power walking, this chip-timed race will be one to remember. Post-race activities include museum admission for the day, photo ops, refreshments and awards! Plus your entrance fee goes to support the museum and its mission. Reservations available; walk-ins accepted.
The Course
Speed along our 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.

Your entry fee includes:

Event souvenir (guaranteed for pre-registrants until Monday, April 28).
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

After the Finish Line
Refuel with complimentary post-race refreshments as you await our awards ceremony. We will present prizes for “Fastest Youth” (under 12), “Fastest Female” and “Fastest Male.” Prizes include gift certificates to the Flint Hill Store and items handcrafted in the Historic 19th-Century Village. Then, spend the rest of your day experiencing the past in Western New York.


Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome!
Check-in begins at 8:00am. Start time is 9:00am sharp!
Course closes at 10:30am. Any participants on the course at this time will be escorted back to the check-in tent.
