Golden Valley Harriers
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.
The board met on Thursday night and, based on the go-ahead from Yolo County, the board opted to re-open official club workouts. Masks must still be worn when not running and social distancing rules still apply. The Tuesday night workouts will continue to meet at the location specified in the weekly announcement for the actual workout. The Thursday night workouts will continue to start and end at the south end of the Central Park at the corner of 3rd and C. Saturday morning workouts will continue to meet in front of Fleet Feet and we are awaiting an update as to whether or not we will have access to the store before/after the run. Hope to see some of you out there!
We are still working on waivers for club members and guests to sign and we are hoping they can be an electronic form that can be signed through the GVH website. We will appreciate your compliance in signing those once they are posted.
The proposal to donate funds to local high schools and the proposal to use the GroupMe app for organizing smaller groups within the club, will both be addressed further at the all club meeting in May. Please save the date of May 11 for our Spring in-person club meeting. We are planning to meet after the Tuesday night speed workout (approx 7 PM) at the Mace Ranch Park. The meeting will be held outdoors but will also be attempting to set up a Zoom option for those who prefer not to attend in-person. More details to follow about the meeting itself as well as the proposals that we hope to vote on.
Remember to stay hydrated as we all adjust to the rising temperatures!
