Run, Bike or Hike for this Fresno County Search & Rescue FUNdraiser on Sunday, August 5th at Shaver Lake for a good cause.
The event features a 5K Wild Run that starts on Fishing Club Road and then goes off road through the forest. There is also a 10K Trail Run that will allow you to experience the beauty of the Sierra's. Both races will be chip timed.
For those who would rather ride than run, there is a 16K Mountain Bike Timed Ride that will wind through the forest and by the lake.
For the more leisurely, there is a 2 Mile Family Hike that will not be times. Walkers will travel from the same starting point as the other races but will twist down to the lake and back up to the starting point.
Each of the courses will begin and finish in the same area on Fishing Club Road near Dinkey Creek Road.

About Fresno County (SAR) Search and Rescue
The Fresno County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Mountaineering Team was formed as an auxiliary unit of the Fresno County Sheriff's Office in 1982. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization of diversified volunteers, formed to augment the Fresno County Sheriff's Office during search and rescue operations in Fresno County and throughout the state of California.
Our team members are trained in various search and rescue disciplines including: orienteering, tracking, wilderness / winter survival, first aid / CPR, swift water and high angle rescue, helicopter safety, search techniques and search management. These skills facilitate our ability to respond to a variety of urban and wilderness emergencies.
During 2009, SAR team members donated thousands of service hours participating in Search and Rescue Operations in Fresno, Madera, Tulare and San Luis Obispo Counties, as well as Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. In addition to SAR missions and monthly training, members also donated hundreds service hours to other non-profit organizations in our area and sponsored events to promote safety in the outdoors.
