Golden Valley Harriers (GVH) is a running club located in Davis, CA. GVHers come in all shapesand sizes—from elite ex-college runners to folks who are just starting to run and everything in between.
Everyone and anyone is welcome to come out and run with us, but we appreciate a positive attitude. (Please note that our insurance requires that runners under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.)
GVH officially meets three times a week for workouts. For more detail, go to Workouts and Events All runs start and finish at Fleet Feet Sports, 615 2nd Street, Davis, CA (Map, Fleet Feet website).
Cross Country season is upon us!
But before we head out to the arboretum, some more recon is required (what trails are still there, etc), so this week, we'll start at the hills.
FYI I will be absentand the following . I have class, but after these two weeks I will be back, and it looks like I won't have any more evening classes.
I have sub-coaches covering me in the meantime.
, Phil Widener Empire Open XC
, Santa Rosa Marathon
, Golden Gate Park XC
We'll do 1.5 mile loops in the arboretum starting and finishing at the trail above the Putah Creek Lodge. Map of the route: www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=582127
The goal is 20 to 30 minutes of fast running, so do a little math and decide how many loops to do. If you're racing Santa Rosa this coming weekend, then maybe do 2.
Looks like it'll be a brisk 90, so not too hot.

A good long run around Davis, looks out for his emails
An extraordinary day of racing at National Club XC Championships for runners and spectators.
New runners are encouraged to try this speed workout out. The warm-up pace is relaxed and we often do the faster paced intervals at a track or a loop where it is hard to get lost or left behind. This is the best attended workout and a great way to work on your form, up your game, and meet club members.
Thursday nights-5:45 p.m. Distance ranges from 5 - 8 miles and the pace is easy to a hard tempo. Note: Plan to leave FF by 5:55 in order to get back by 7 pm.
Saturday mornings-8:00 a.m. Standard distances are 7 - 10 miles usually at an easy, social pace, but you can usually count on a few to kick in a brisk, tempo run. Marathoners often tack on 3 - 10 miles. About 15 - 25 runners show, but only a few may be there if there is a big local race. We often grab breakfast afterwards.
GVH members receive additional e-mail announcements of additional workouts, trail runs, races, uniform buys, and social events.
