INAUGURAL Half Marathon to Kick off this August in Fresno County

INAUGURAL half marathon to kick off this August in Shaver Lake, California.  The Fresno County Search and Rescue Team wants to give you a challenge, so they are putting on the 1st SAR Wild Run Trail Half Marathon. This “Half” will have you running the previous year’s bike trail along the southeast side of Shaver Lake while adding more miles in the forest with great views of the lake. But save your energy as you will finish scrambling up the 5K Wild Run. They say with the longer course the chances are better of seeing BIG FOOT!  The half marathon race is set to take place on August 10th, 2014 in Shaver Lake, CA and can be found listed under August on the California Half Marathons Calendar.
