420 Games to Host Pittsburgh’s First Fun Run/Walk at the World Medical Cannabis Conference & Expo

420 Games to Host Pittsburgh’s First Fun Run/Walk

The 420 Games, a series of active events promoting a healthy cannabis lifestyle, announced it will add Pittsburgh to its national tour.

The organization will host a Fun Run/Walk from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Thursday, April 12, on the Great Lawn at the North Shore River Walk, in Pittsburgh.

The wellness event is open to the public and will kick-off the second-annual World Medical Cannabis Conference & Expo (WMCC Expo), April 12-14, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

The Fun Run/Walk covers 4.2 miles along Pittsburgh’s famed rivers with race-ready music, vendors, and refreshments. Participation is free. Commemorative race T-shirts will be available on site for $15. For information or to sign up visit 420games.org.

Jim McAlpine, founder of the 420 Games, started the competition to break down industry stereotypes. He designed the race to accommodate beginning to advanced level athletes, families and people of all ages.

“The 420 Games provides a unique opportunity for athletes and health and wellness enthusiasts to come together and participate in a variety of activities, including a 4.2 mile fun run / walk for cannabis respect and awareness,” said founder, Jim McAlpine. “Traditional runs tend to be 5K’s, or 3.2 miles. Our race incorporates an additional mile so participants can literally ‘go the extra mile’ for cannabis.”

McAlpine will also lead a Medical Cannabis in Sports panel during the WMCC Expo with former professional athletes, including: NFL player and Super Bowl winner Marvin Washington; NFL player Eben Britton; NHL player Riley Cote; and undefeated UFL Middleweight champion Frank Shamrock.

Nearly 6,000 attendees are expected to attend the expo and 175 exhibitors from across the country. Speakers include high-profile medical, financial, sports and cannabis industry leaders.
