SAR Wild Run

August 12, 2018

Don’t delay in registering for our 2018 event as space is limited, our prior two years sold-out!

An event for the entire family, join us for this Fresno County Search And Rescue FUNdraiser!  Starting 1/4mi North of the intersection of Dinkey Creek Rd. & Fishing Club Rd, on the South side of Shaver Lake, experience the beautiful Sierra scenery of Shaver Lake, breathtaking meadows, forests and cool streams all for a good cause. Participants receive a technical event shirt, unique medallion, chip timing and BBQ prepared by the Fresno County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team!

What better way to escape the oppressive Valley heat in August then to enjoy the coolness of the mountains at 5,400 feet elevation. This event is part of the Trail Runner Magazine Trophy Series.

Help us find Big Foot and register for the Trail Half Marathon, 10K, 5K Wild Run or 2 Mile Family Hike!
5k Course Description: First mile is a descent to water’s edge leading to a mile long 200’ high ‘scramble’ of switch-backs along a mountain side, which is where the 5k Wild Run receives it’s name!
