The City of Liberty’s second annual pet-friendly 5K will be held Saturday, May 7. $25 to register through April 15; $30 April 16 or later. Student/group discounts available when you register at City Hall through April 15. This year’s benefitting partner is A.D.O.P.T, a local organization that partners with both Pickens County Animal Control and the Liberty Police Department to solve the problem of animal overpopulation by taking strays to major metro areas where they are given the best chance at adoption into a permanent home.
Kickoff for this event is at 9 am; event sign-in and packet pickup begins at 8 am. The course will begin and end at the “Old LHS” football stadium (251 N. Hillcrest St.), taking runners through downtown Liberty and offering a one-mile detour for those looking to simply stroll with their pets. ** Please note: One-mile participants will not be chipped or be able to receive official times.**
