GVH'ers, Nice to see GVH'ers sending messages to meet for unsanctioned, socially distanced runs. Thanks to you who are re-upping for another year.....a semblance of our typical club will resume mid-year when we all get vaccinated! Until then....let us know how we can make your running better!
Looking to run with others in Davis?.... Some members meet with friends to start their run on Tues night, Thurs morning, and Sat morning - these runs are not GVH sanctioned. For info on these runs contact Craighton, Joachim, or Brigette.
