A lot of our members like to enter local races. We have some pretty competitive runners who call GVH home, as well as runners who just like to participate in races for fun.
Racing doesn't have to be intimidating. It can be a lot of fun, especially if there are several GVHers there and you are cheering each other on. There is nothing like a friendly face yelling, "Go! GO!" to get you through the last bit.
In the fall we have several cross country teams that compete for fun in the USATF Pacific Association cross country season.
