Epic Pi Day 5K Free Fun Run – TAKE 2!

 

March 14, 2020 marks the 5 year anniversary of our FREE 5K Fun Run Series here at the shop.

Math nerds unite, and come have some irrational fun! Just like the first year, we encourage everyone to bring a little pie to share after the race.

We began this event series back in 2015 with the Pi Day Run (3/14/15), and have successfully continued to offer a FREE race series that gives back to the community with each and every event. We will continue that with this month’s event by collecting GIFT CARDS to be donated to the St. Michaels High School After Prom Party Committee. Each year, a group of volunteers (mostly parents), work together to produce a safe, alcohol- and drug-free “party” for students immediately following Prom. Throughout the evening, students that attend are eligible to receive various door prizes for pledging to remain drug- and alcohol-free! Examples of gift cards to donate can be anything from gas cards, grocery cards, Amazon cards, iTunes cards, etc!

The FUN RUN series is designed to be just that….FUN! We keep things fun by having the fun runs set up as prediction races. What is a prediction race? We ask you to try and guess your finish time and then, the participant that comes closest to their official time is declared a race winner! Any participant that guesses within 10 seconds is declared a winner in our book. Sound like fun? You should come give it a try! Some races we have no winners, and some races we have had 10 winners!

On-site registration and bib pickup will begin inside the shop at 8:00am. The race will begin at 9:00am. We ask all participants to try and arrive no later than 8:30am. Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (200 Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down to the shop.
