The 5K trail course is a challenging, but beautiful course that winds its way through the woods, trails, and ponds on our 160 acre property.

The 1 mile walk also takes place along the trails and fields of Genesee Valley.


About Genesee Valley and the Tom LaMonica 5K run
Genesee Valley Outdoor Learning Center is a nonprofit organization founded by Tom LaMonica in 1981.  Tom was a teacher and coach at Friends School of Baltimore and passionately served as our leader until his passing in September 2010.  We are determined to continue


his vision to provide opportunities for learners of all ages to experience success and growth through shared outdoor experiences.

This 5K run is a memorial to our founder and our biggest fundraising event of the year.

Genesee Valley is dedicated to an experiential approach to education that allows students and adults to work better as a group in the classroom, on their team, in their family, or at the office.  In all of our programs we actively address communication, healthy risk-taking, confidence building, persistence, leadership, and creative problem solving.

We offer a wide variety of programs: Adventure Day programs (with overnight camping option) for schools, groups, and corporate groups; Spring Break camp; Summer Camp; Off-Site programs (year-round)

Our campus also hosts a variety of sporting events including lacrosse, soccer, football, and field hockey throughout the year.

All proceeds directly support Genesee Valley programs!


Thank you to last years sponsors!
