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.

Announcements (11/29/2021):

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Good luck to everyone participating in CIM this Sunday. Looks like you might have some ideal weather conditions.

Everyone should have received an email invitation for our GVH Holiday gathering set to take place on December 18. Please read the invitation carefully as there are lots of important details about the new twists on our old traditions. Be sure to RSVP for yourself and any guests you may be bringing. Families are encouraged to join us. If you would like to volunteer to help with the party (and we really hope you would like to) please contact Scott Sambucci.

The Tuesday night workouts continue to meet at 5:45 PM for the warm up and 6:05 PM for intervals. Watch for the weekly announcement from Craighton for each week's location. Bring head lamps or other lights!

The Thursday night workouts start and finish at the south end of the Central Park at the corner of 3rd and C with runners departing at 5:55 PM. You will need lights!

Saturday morning workouts meet at 8:00 in front of Fleet Feet with runners heading out at 8:10 AM.

The GVH dues link has been updated to reflect the $25 price for 2022. Anyone who pays from now until the end of this year, including any new members, will be paid up through all of 2022. Tell your friends to join now! Recruitment post cards are stashed in the GVH closet at Fleet Feet so if you know of any places that would be appropriate to advertise for some new club members, please grab some cards and spread them around.

Remember we have created GroupMe links for those wishing to communicate about training or social events: "GVH - Runs And Workouts", "GVH - Social". See the e-mail for information.

Happy running!
