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.)

Announcements (4/24/2022):

Hello GVH!

The board will be holding the first in-person meeting in quite a while on Monday, 04/25, at Steve’s Pizza, from 5:30-6:30 PM. All club members are always welcome to attend any board meetings. The agenda has been attached to this email. One agenda item includes picking a location and date for an in-person club meeting in May. Please let me or any board member know if you have suggestions for that.

The Tuesday night workouts continue to meet at 5:45 PM for the warm up and 6:10 PM for intervals. Watch for the weekly announcement from Craighton for each week's location.

There is a Thursday morning track workout that meets at the UCD track for intervals after a dynamic warm up that begins at 7:45 AM. This group usually heads for coffee after for those who are able to stay.

The Thursday evening 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. This is a 7 mile loop usually run at an easy pace. Some of us are mixing in tempo runs of varying distances. There is now a greater variety of speeds and distances to choose from, so please join us!

Saturday morning workouts meet at 8:00 in front of Fleet Feet with runners heading out at 8:10 AM for a 7 or 10 mile loop.
