Event Description

The 20th annual Golden Valley Harriers (GVH) Labor Day Races will be held on Monday, September 5, 2016.

Our Labor Day Race celebrates a true grass-roots community event organized entirely by volunteers. For the past eight (8) years, the event has raised over $10,000 per year for local schools, Team Davis and other community running programs.  We will continue to offer high quality technical T-shirts and we are also now offering optional participant medals!  The Kids Race is free to run with an optional t-shirt to make this event even more memorable!

For the second year in a row we will be hosting UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital 5K Doggy Dash – for our four legged runners and their humans.  Proceeds from the Doggy Dash will go towards the Faithful Partner Program a fund established by the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and the UC Davis Police Department to assist with the medical costs of K-9 officers, as well as search and rescue dogs, injured in the line of duty.
