Golden Valley Harriers
(GVH) is a running club located in Davis, CA. GVHers come in all shapes
and sizes—from elite ex-college runners to folks who are just starting to run and everything in between.  The club is organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  Donations to the club are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  Our Tax ID# is 14-1841731.

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 meets for workouts at Fleet Feet Sports, 615 2nd Street, Davis, CA (Map, Fleet Feet website). Group runs are on Tuesdays (5:45 pm), Thursdays (5:55 pm) and Saturdays (8 am). For more details, go to Workouts and Events 


1.  Tuesday August 15th, 2017 Speed Workout: 1,000 m repeats at Community Park.
2.  Davis Beer Race (at Sudwerks Dock Store): Sunday, August 20th @ 11 amThe Race Committee has been working hard to get this new event set up, and now we need your help to get the word out. This event will be timed with our awesome new GVH display clock. The event distance will be 4.8 miles, which will be matched by a 4.8 % brewed beer by Sudwerks. This will be a small race, with only limited amount of registrations allowed. We can only register 200 runners, with commemorative bottle openers for the first 120 registrants.

Price: $20 for full distance race, and free for the kids 1 mile fun run.

Full Race info can be accessed and shared with this link: http://www.goldenvalleyharriers.org/sudwerks-beer-week-race

Volunteers are needed to help with this new event.  See the e-mail from Mark Golz sent on 7/17 with the sign-up spreadsheet, or contact Cristina if you can help.

3.    Inuyama Visitors Hosts Needed. Our Inuyama (Japan sister city) friends will be visiting from Thursday (evening), September 7th - Monday (morning), September 11th and will be needing a host home to stay during their visit. This would be a great opportunity for any GVHers who have had the awesome opportunity to travel to Inuyama and be hosted by our Inuyama friends, to open their homes if you have the room and time in your schedule to do so. This is also a great chance for anyone interested in visiting Inuyama next year or in the future to get to know some runners that might end up hosting you during your visit. I understand it is a great commitment, but it is very rewarding. This year we have 9 members visiting. 5 of them will be racing. Friends of Inuyama is also working on getting host families on their end, but they are asking if we could help them out.

Email Cristina if you are interested in hosting or have questions regarding what is involved in hosting.  We need to have host families decided by the August 7th.
