5K Freedom Run Planned at Black Beauty Ranch



The second annual 5K Freedom Run is scheduled May 11 at the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch near Murchison.

Everybody’s invited to see the 1,350-acre animal sanctuary and support the cause of bringing attention to the use of great apes in research as well as celebrating the 50th birthday of one of the ranch’s chimpanzees, Lulu.

Registration begins at 7 a.m. The race is a run/walk event and will start at 8:00 a.m. with a beginner to intermediate course partially on gravel roads through open pastures and wooded trails. Prizes will be given to the first, second and third place winners for men and women only. Pets are not allowed on property.

The ranch is at 12526 CR 3806. For more information, email jlane@humanesociety.org or call 903.469.3811.
