GVH'ers, Fall is just around the corner, cooler temps this past weekend and shorter days make our runs even better! Today 11 of our GVH family volunteered at the Buffalo Stampede to offset the Chips help with our inaugural GVH Lagoon Valley XC race last week - Special recognition goes to Steve B, Steve S, Jen S, Cristina D, Heather J, Andrea B, Jim F, Ben, Olena and Scott S for stepping up on this Sunday morning! Many of these names also volunteered last week at the XC race -- this is what taking responsibility within our running community is all about! Thanks team!

New GVH T-shirts were on display at the XC Race!!! If you ordered a t-shirt, or the popular flowy tank....contact Brigette for delivery and payment! Our website also has a PayPal button.
