About The SAR Wild Run
SAR Wild Run in Shaver Lake, California on 13 August, 2023 is a great half marathon for runners of all levels. Whether you’re a first-time runner or an experienced racer, this event will challenge and entertain you. The route takes you through the rolling hills of the Sierra National Forest and up to Shaver Lake itself. You’ll get amazing views of the lake from high points along the route and experience some challenging terrain as well.
The scenery during SAR Wild Run is absolutely stunning! The mountains are covered in lush pine trees and other evergreens while wildflowers line the trails throughout much of your journey. Wildlife is abundant here so keep your eyes open for deer, bears, bald eagles, hawks and more!
August weather in Shaver Lake can range from warm to hot but typically averages around 75 degrees Fahrenheit with usually mostly clear skies. This makes it perfect running conditions – cool enough that you won’t overheat yet still warm enough to enjoy being outside without bundling up too much!
Crowds at SAR Wild Run vary depending on what level race you choose but they are generally friendly and supportive no matter which one you pick. Everyone cheers each other on along the way making this race particularly enjoyable even if you don’t win any awards or medals at its completion. There’s also plenty of music playing before (for motivation!) And after (for celebration!) To keep things lively throughout your journey as well as various food vendors available once it’s done so nobody has to go hungry either!
What sets this race apart from others though is that there are three different levels: Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced giving something for everyone regardless of their skill level or preference when it comes to running distances/terrain types etc… Plus proceeds from every entry fee goes towards supporting local charities making sure those less fortunate have access to basic necessities like food shelter clothes medical care etc… So not only do participants get a chance to push themselves physically & mentally but they also help out their communities by doing so – definitely something worth considering if considering taking part in SAR Wild Run 2023 edition!!
