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 Sudwerk Brewing Co., 2001 2nd St, Davis, CA.  An informal group in GVH meets at the UC Davis track on Thursday mornings at 8 am.  For more details, see Nicole's weekly e-mail message, or go to the Workouts and Events page. 

GVH donated $525 to each XC team at Woodland HS and Pioneer HS as part of our 2023 program to support local running programs. The coaches came to our Saturday morning run to express thanks and tell us how the donations have been used. Last year, Alex, the Woodland coach, used the 2022 donation to buy a pop-up tent with the school logo which is wildly popular with the XC and track team.

2023 Fall Fundraising Drive

We have the opportunity to get a 4 to 1 matching donation up to a maximun of $5,000. If we raise $1,000, the anonymous donor will match $4,000. The anonymous donor is not a member of the club. These donations are critical to keeping our dues low and decreasing the barriers to participation.

You can donate via the link at the bottom of this web page.

We raised $1,000 of the $1,000 in less than one day. Thanks to all those who donated.

Hi GVH,


We have two important announcements. Next week on March 21, Thursday we are:

Address: 2001 2nd St, Davis, CA 95618


Thursday Night Runs - Now Starting at Sudwerk

Next week on March 21 onward, the Thursday night runs will begin at Sudwerk. Meet in front of the Sudwerk restaurant entrance (in the general area shown below) at 5:50pm. 



There are 3, 3.9, and 7 mile route options (see attached, thanks to Craighton). The 3 mile is probably best done as an out and back along the south part of the 3 mile loop past Marguerite Montgomery. The 7 mile loop is easily modified and has only 1 street crossing over Cowell.


If you or you know someone who goes to the Thursday evening runs regularly, please spread the word.


For further questions, please email Heather: heatherjones0220@gmail.com


GVH Team Meeting

We will be having a team meeting at Sudwerk on March 21, 7pm. Members are encouraged to come.


First priority agenda item will be to discuss the language and decision on filling board vacancies. Here is Article 4 which mentions vacancies highlighted in yellow. We as a board are reconsidering revising the language due to the special circumstances of this vacancy.


Article 4 – Officers and Committees

Section 1 – Composition and Election: The officers of GVH shall comprise the Board of Directors. They shall

come from the general membership and serve one-year terms beginning January 1 of each year. Officers may

be elected to consecutive terms. Elections will take place in the last quarter of the preceding calendar year

with open nominations and a polling of the general membership (i.e., dues-paying members). Election to the

Board shall occur in the following format:
