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.)

6.    San Francisco Full/Half Marathon Free Entry up for grabs: A few members from the California Invasive Plant Council (Cal-IPC) are recruiting runners for their charity team to run the SF Marathon. They've got one full marathon bib and 8 half-marathon bibs left.  In exchange for a free special charity team bib, all they ask is that you reach out to your contacts to raise funds for a good cause (no $ minimum required).  Cal-IPC will use the funds raised from this event to make progress on important projects like updating our Invasive Plant Inventory and the on-the-ground invasive Volutaria eradication effort in Southern California.  

Check out their website for more information on what they do: www.cal-ipc.org.

 Attached is a flyer with links to instructions for how to sign up, get your free bib, and start your Crowdrise team member fundraising page.

 Please reach out to Tanya, (nassella@outlook.com) or Gina (gina.darin@gmail.com) if you have any questions regarding the entry process.
