White River 50 mile Run – ESAR support 8-5-17

Pierce County Explorer Search and Rescue helped support the White River 50 mile run on Saturday.  There were about 260 runners across a 50-mile course from 6:00 am until 8:00 pm.  ESAR was stationed at every check point and ensured the runners’ safety by ensuring each runner was accounted for, as well as providing communications and onsite first-aid.

ESAR is about community service.  We have members from all over Pierce County, some are as young as 14 years old, others are continuing to serve well into their retirement years.  We are men, women, boys and girls, from varied backgrounds, but we all choose to be there when we are needed.
