The 420 Games are right around the corner
The 420 Games will take place on Saturday, March 31 and Sunday, April 1, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. each day, at the Santa Monica Pier, bringing famous faces, Olympic runners, X-Games and BMX athletes, and over one hundred cannabis brands together for two-days of healthy competition and community.
“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 run / walk for cannabis respect and awareness,” said founder, Jim McAlpine. “Traditional races 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.”
This year’s two-day event is expected to draw thousands to the Santa Monica Pier and surrounding areas. The race portion of the event will take place on both Saturday and Sunday, with registration and check-in at 9:00 a.m. and a shotgun start at 10:00 a.m. The course will take participants on a scenic loop from Santa Monica down to Venice Beach and back.
Vapexhale & CannAthlete will also be hosting a sub only Jiu Jitsu competition and are looking for the following weight categories: Men - 135, 155, and 170 lbs / Women - 115 lbs
Each winner will receive a $750 Vapexhale Starter Kit. If you are interested, please send your name, weight class, and contact information to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Unlike most other cannabis events, The 420 Games ask that their participants do not smoke on site. The Games are focused on education and advocacy for adult’s, ages 21 and over, who use cannabis responsibly as part of their health and wellness routine.
“This event was created to help shape the perception of cannabis and those who use it in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle,” said McAlpine. “There are countless athletes and successful American’s who have integrated cannabis into their daily regimen in a responsible manner, yielding positive results and endless gains in terms of health and wellness. The 420 Games continues to spread that positivity and to shed light on the innumerable benefits of this curative plant.”
