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.

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. All runs start and finish at Fleet Feet Sports, 615 2nd Street, Davis, CA (Map, Fleet Feet website).


GVH was kicking it at the Ancil Hoffman XC race with runners in the open, masters, seniors, and super seniors division!

• Tuesday nights-5:45 p.m.
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.

Tuesday, 9/2/2014 mile repeats in Shields Grove

 For more details, go to Workouts and Events

• 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.
