GVH is a running club located in Davis, CA dedicated to promoting running in the community. Members 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 RRCA insurance requires that runners under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.)
GVH currently meets for workouts Saturday mornings at 8 am at Fleet Feet Sports, 615 2nd Street, Davis, CA (Map, Fleet Feet website). Tuesday group runs meet at 5:45 pm at the location of the workout identified in the weekly e-mail message sent out by Craighton. Thursdays group runs meet at 5:55 pm at Central Park (corner of 3rd and C). An informal group in GVH meets at the UC Davis track on Thursday mornings at 8 am. For more details, see the weekly e-mail message sent out by Angie, or go to the Workouts and Events page.
GVH donated $525 to each XC team at Woodland HS and Pioneer HS as part of our 2023 program to support local running programs. The coaches came to our Saturday morning run to express thanks and tell us how the donations have been used. Last year, Alex, the Woodland coach, used the 2022 donation to buy a pop-up tent with the school logo which is wildly popular with the XC and track team.
2023 Fall Fundraising Drive
We have the opportunity to get a 4 to 1 matching donation up to a maximun of $5,000. If we raise $1,000, the anonymous donor will match $4,000. The anonymous donor is not a member of the club. These donations are critical to keeping our dues low and decreasing the barriers to participation.
You can donate via the link at the bottom of this web page.
We raised $1,000 of the $1,000 in less than one day. Thanks to all those who donated.
