This program supports patients who have been diagnosed with heart and lung disease primarily through supervised exercise and education.
This is a rare opportunity to run/walk on an actual working buffalo ranch. The Terry Bison ranch was originally the south headquarters of the historic Warren Livestock Company and used for raising cattle and sheep. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the ranch twice in the early 1900’s. In 1993, the ranch was purchased by the Thiel family and the great American buffalo were introduced. The ranch is now 27,500 acres and stretches into Northern Colorado.
Terrain consists of gentle rolling hills on gravel roads, dirt roads and trails. Restrooms are available at the start/finish line. Aid-stations will be available halfway through the 5k and 10k courses. Walkers are welcome!
Each participant will receive a complimentary ride on the Terry Bison Ranch Bison Train on September 7, 2019, a $14 value. This narrated tour allows participants a great close-up view of bison, ostriches, camels and a variety of other animals. Each participant will receive a delicious hot breakfast provided by Sodexo and a pair of racing socks.
