Run the 5K WILD RUN, 10K Trail Run, 16K Mountain Bike Ride or the 2 Mile Family Hike for this Fresno County Search & Rescue FUNdraiser! Starting at Shaver Lake's Fishing Club, experience the beautiful Sierra scenery of Shaver Lake, breathtaking meadows, forests, and cool streams all for a good cause. Base elevation is apoprox 5400 ft. “Revised route under construction” for the 10K and Mountain bike routes.
The 5K Wild Run is just that..... From the start you run on trails with views of Shaver Lake. You think to yourself, this is a nice trail run... then you hit the end of the trail and there you start scrambling up the hill, over logs and other obstacles until you reach the finish-line.
The 10K Trail Run is a challenge adventure run through the beautiful Sierra scenery with a nice dose of elevation drops and climbs. Runners will start on the perimeter trail and head in a south westerly direction and across Swanson Meadow, through the forest at Camp Chawanakee. Then proceed to Nevins Peninsula, with views of Dorabelle Cove where you will make a large loop and continue on secondary trails back to Swanson Meadow and the perimeter trail to the finish.
The 16K (Timed) SAR Wild Run Bike Ride gives you a chance to see many views of the lake. The bike trail starts on the road as the 5K but then takes a sharp right and heads along the south side of the lake to S Stevenson Creek where it will cross and head north on a secondary road and then connect to the Lakeshore trail. From there it takes you along the lakes edge, traverses some switchbacks, do a few climbs, go in and out of the forest and then connect with another access road which will bring you back to the creek. At that point you will take the road back to the start.
The 2 Mile Family Hike gives you who don't want to run or bike a chance to hike and support the Fresno County Search and Rescue team as well.
