GVH is a running club located in Davis, CA dedicated to promoting running in the community.

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 meets for workouts at Fleet Feet Sports, 615 2nd Street, Davis, CA (Map, Fleet Feet website). Group runs are on Tuesdays (5:45 pm), Thursdays (5:55 pm) and Saturdays (8 am). An informal group in GVH meets at the UC Davis track on Thursday mornings at 8 am. For more details, go to the Workouts and Events page.

Announcements (6/28/20):

GVH'ers: The board reviewed resuming group runs with varying thoughts. At this time we encourage you to get out and run, but we won't resume official weekly group meetings. Many of us have our own social running groups, and I suggest we all maintain these in order to keep sane. If you'd like to connect with others using the listserv you're welcome to do it without the club sanction, or email me for specific addresses.

GVH Lagoon Valley XC Race, Sunday, Sept. 6. The board is evaluating the plausibility of hosting this race as is the PAUSATF committee on hosting the Fall XC series. Our race has a wide open course offering the social distancing requirement, but logic tells us attendance will be much lower than last year where we made a small profit. Our cost outlay (deposits, permit fees) can get recouped if we make a decision soon. If you have any opinions please share them with Craighton or me.

Fleet Feet Announces Red, White & You! Virtual Run/Walk 5K, 10K, & Half Marathon. Start your Fourth of July celebrations off with a bang by running or walking a 5K, 10K or half marathon. Then comes flip-flops, fireworks and firing up the BBQ. Because if you didn't grill, did the Fourth of July even happen? Run or walk this virtual 5K, 10K or half marathon any time, anywhere. Complete your run by the end of June and you will receive: Commemorative Red, White & You Bib, Commemorative T-shirt; Finisher's Medal.


KAISER PERMANENTE WOMEN'S FITNESS FESTIVAL VIRTUAL 5K, 10K & PRINCESS RUN: Please join us for the 2020 Kaiser Permanente Women's Fitness Festival Virtual 5K, 10K and Princess Run. As a virtual participant you may complete your distance at the time and location of your choosing between now and August 30. You can run or walk in your neighborhood, on the trail, in a park or on a treadmill. Once you finish your race you can submit your time to be included in the age division results. Submitting your results is optional and not required. Participants in the 5K and 10K will receive a premium technical shirt, a gorgeous custom medal and a commemorative bib. Participants in the Princess Run will receive a medal and a bib. All of the race donations will go to Women Escaping a Violent Environment (WEAVE.) Now, more than ever, they need our support. During the time of the state-mandated shelter-in-place order, domestic violence has increased by at least 17%. Your donations will go to help support women in need in our community.
