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'ers: I talked with a few members this week on running in pandemic-ville...comments like, "I'm not running as much now", and "I'm 10 seconds slower on my half marathon than 3 months ago", while others (Chris Dalton and Jacob Cohen) are competing in the Cool Moon 100 mile race Aug. 8!
It is what it is, let's give ourselves a break......we'll get through this and return to normalcy.
July 15 GVH Board Meeting Redux
2021 Dues Relief: The board discussed adjusting club renewal fees in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. Another option was to offer renewals and new memberships at a reduced fee to encourage new memberships. Some relief will happen, no decision at this time.
Let us know your thoughts: would you like no fee for your renewal or a reduced fee for renewals and new memberships? Reply back to Mike or a board member. Thanks!
Full board meeting notes are posted on the meetings page.
