GVH Women at Granite Park XC race 2013
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).
8/16/2014 XC Santa Cruz, I will be heading down early to help officiate. If anyone wants a ride, let me know, but plan to spend the whole morning down there. (There are a lot of worse places than the redwood grove above the UC Santa Cruz Campus.)
8/23/2014 XC Ancil Hoffman, Sacramento. We are targeting this race and should have boys and girls teams there. Register on line at Rebel Challenge now for only $15. For those of you new to XC, these are no-frills events. Expect to get dirty and you do not get a race shirt.

• 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.
• 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.
