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 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.
