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.)

Announcements (10/18/20)

GVH'ers, The board met last Monday (see PDF linked in the Meetings page). While meeting restrictions for indoor and outdoor activities have eased, the board voted not to resume group sanctioned runs or hold in person club meetings; this may change when we move to a new COVID safety tier. (Yolo County is currently in the "red" tier.) Some members meet with friends to start their run on Tues night, Thurs morning, and Sat morning - these runs are not GVH sanctioned. Contact Mike or see the e-mail for contacts.

GVH Board Meeting Oct. 12. GVH is doing well financially - with the endowment fund and in our liquid accounts. We haven't started the 2021 renewal push yet, but we already have 35 renewals/new members, along with tax-deductible donations - thanks to those who stepped up early!

Blue Moon 5K time trial Oct 31. Plans are coming together for an un-sanctioned Blue Moon 5K time trial. See the e-mail for more info.
