An unprecedented 500 people have registered for Friday’s Fifth Annual Healthy High Road Race and walk starting at 4:20 p.m. at the New Balance Recreation and Fitness Center. The event promotes fitness and raises awareness about healthy alternatives to alcohol and drug use. The UMaine Alcohol and Drug Education Office is sponsoring a 1-mile fun run and walk, a 5K run-walk and a 10K course. The event coincides with a health and wellness expo from noon to 4 p.m. at the recreation center. For information about the expo, the race, registration, a Soles for Souls charity shoe recycling initiative, and a performance at 2 p.m. by Frank and the Red Hots, visit an event website or call 581-1423.
