Description

Formerly known as the Wascally Wabbit Half Mawothon, we've taken this race to the trails, on the Finegold Creek Preserve, operated and managed by the Sierra Foothill Conservancy. 

Feel the sense of satisfaction when you complete this race knowing that you've also helped a great cause. All race proceeds go to Kids Kasa Foster Care to help college-bound former foster children & Sierra Foothill Conservancy. With your support we have helped many former foster children attend higher education at a community college, four year university, or trade school.

Kids Kasa Foster Care Inc. was started in 2004 and is a non-profit 501-(c)-3 which has always worked toward helping children reunify with their families.  

About the Venue

The Austin and Mary Ewell Preserve at Fine Gold Creek was acquired by SFC in 2008. It protects 718 acres of land and one and one half miles of lower Fine Gold Creek starting where it flows into Millerton Lake. Like most foothill streams Fine Gold does not flow in the summer, but it does maintain several large pools of water even in the hottest months.

History
The Preserve was established with funding from Mr. Ben Ewell and family, the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the Wildlife Conservation Board (part of the California Department of Fish and Game).

Habitat
In addition to the riparian vegetation along the creek, the Fine Gold Preserve protects Valley Elderberry Longhorn Beetles, Western Pond Turtles, and one of the few southern Sierra populations of the Dutchman’s Pipe Vine Swallowtail butterfly.
