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.
GVH'ers: Hope you are enjoying this weather...a bit of a repeat ahead....it'll heat up mid-week then mellow out for our long weekend runs!
Fleet Feet Davis is fielding calls from concerned citizens that runners are meeting in front of the store and not following state guidance, etc. (i.e. citizens think these are FF sponsored runs). Please be smart and move any friend runs to another site. We're monitoring group gathering guidance from Yolo County and the state for when we can resume group runs and meetings...but at this time there are no club runs on any day of the week at Fleet Feet or elsewhere.
Running with Masks???? Interesting article on the topic. Bottom line is it depends on where you live - for Yolo County it's not mandatory.
