Utah State Prison inmates participating in an addiction recovery program will run in a 5-kilometer race next week.

Prison officials said Thursday the 72 male inmates have been training for several months to run the 5K race, which will be held at the Draper prison's Promontory Facility on April 28.

Authorities say the run was organized under the Addict II Athlete program, which is designed a support group for people facing stress and addiction.

Female inmates from the Orange Street Community Correctional Center did a 5K run through the program last year.
