Healthy High Race 4/20

The Healthy High 5k & 10k is an annual race that takes place at UMaine on the 20th of August every year for the past 10 years. The race serves as a healthy outlet and alternative on a day that has become nationally known as a cannabis consumption day around the smoking community. By participating on the race, people are encouraged to exercise instead of consuming drugs.

This is a map of the race showing both the 5k and the 10k course so runners know where they're going.
The race is able to run smoothly thanks to the support and help of volunteers, staff, and police officers working together to keep everyone safe.
Registration for the event takes place at the UMaine Student Recreational Center.
Before the race, runners share a few moments with friends and family getting themselves ready for the race.

And the best part is that everyone, no matter how fast or slow went, got a Healthy High medal for being healthy on 420!
