COVID-19 and HOTV
Monday, March 23
At this time, we are officially canceling all official club activities 😢😭 So starting tonight and continuing for the foreseeable future, no more Motivation Monday, Track Tuesday, Track Wednesday, (Un)Social run, or weekend trail runs. Sad, we know, but it is for the good of everyone as we work to remain socially distant and flatten the curve!
Oh, also the Mac Forest is closed effective immediately, which is also a bummer 💔😢Hopefully a necessary (and temporary) step towards keeping us all safe!
But don't despair, as there is a slight hint of good news! The board is working on figuring out a fun fitness challenge that we can all participate in virtually. That way, we can stay connected (virtually), stay active, maintain physical and mental well-being, and maybe win a prize! So stay tuned for Facebook/email information.
Your HOTV Board
Heart of the Valley Running Club is a diverse group of road and trail runners from in and around Corvallis, Oregon. The Club provides runners with camaraderie and support, as well as various social activities.
Dues are just $20 per year for an individual, $30 for a couple or family, and $10 for students. No one is turned away for lack of funds.

Scenic and challenging 30k and 8k trail runs at Bald Hill Park in Corvallis, OR with great views and fun courses. Easy 2 mile walk/run almost entirely on smooth paved path (except for last bit across gravel parking lot to finish) and free 1/4 mile kids run are fun for the entire family. Benefits the Greenbelt Land Trust trail fund.
