Epic Races proudly presents Run 3.14 Pi, the race that celebrates this circle-related number … and the circular edible it brings to mind. Starting at 9:26:53 AM on 3/14/15, participants will run or walk a 3.14-mile loop (as fans of π, we like to think of the course as a circle) at picturesque Hudson Mills MetroPark. And, since this is all about Pi, we’ll start with a special Pie Wave: a pie-eating division in which competitors start their run or walk once their pie plate is empty. Don’t want to hit the trail on a full stomach? You can still commemorate Pi Day with our optional Pie in the Face at the finish line!
In addition, all our Run 3.14 Pi participants will receive:
chip timing with results posted online within 6 hours of the race
a fabulous 3.14″ circular finisher’s medal
a high-quality, super-soft race T-shirt (sizes not guaranteed after March 1, 2015)
a goodie bag full of samples from our sponsors
a post-race feast featuring pie and more pie!
Can’t make it to the race? Have your own private π celebration? No problem! Run 3.14 Pi has a virtual option, so you can run or walk for π anywhere: on a treadmill, around your neighborhood, even in Pi-ttsburgh or Mississip-Pi! You’ll still receive our fabulous finisher’s medal and super-soft T; you’ll just be with us in s-Pi-rit!
Here’s what you need to do:
— Complete your 3.14 miles by Saturday, March 14
— Take a screenshot of your sports-tracking smartphone app showing the distance or of your GPS watch with the completed mileage
— Post the photo on the Run 3.14 Pi Facebook page… and be sure to tell us about your ex-Pi-rience! If you’re Tweeting about Run 3.14 Pi, be sure to tag @epicraces in your Tweet!
Your race goodies will be mailed out to you shortly after the completion of the actual Run 3.14 Pi event.
