EPIC Pi Day Free 5k!!!!!

We are kicking off our new FREE 5k series from TriCycle and Run on Saturday, March 14th, 2015, with our EPIC PI DAY 5k!! That’s right, the number Pi that we have all tried to forget since those days in school is back. The first 10 digits of Pi are 3.141592653 so…..3/14/15 with the race starting at 9:26:53 am!!! We ask that everyone shows up around 8:30 am so that we have time for everyone to register for the race.

WHAT’S THE COST?

NOTHING!! Did you miss the FREE part? 🙂 All that we ask is that you bring a non-perishable food item for donation to our local food bank.

BUT I NEVER WIN, WHAT’S THE POINT?

We know that there are always some really fast people who show up for these races. And they always win, and we always tell ourselves that we aren’t in it to win it…. but we want to challenge ourselves. We know that. We understand that. We don’t win either… but we know what we can do and we want to challenge ourselves. Well here’s the twist.

THIS RACE WILL NOT BE WON BY THE FASTEST PERSON, IT WILL BE WON BY THE PERSON WHO CAN CLOSEST GUESS WHAT THEIR FINISH TIME WILL BE!!! What?!?

This simply means that if you know that you run a 25 minute 5k, and that’s the time figure that you write down on your entry slip and you come closest to that time out of everyone guessing, YOU WIN!!! It won’t matter if Matt or Ben (you two know who you are!!!) go flying by us. The only thing that matters will be their time based on their guess.

WHAT DO I WIN?

We’ll have some goodies there from our featured guest, Altra Running, as well as some other local people. And, of course, there will be some awesome TriCycle and Run prizes as well.

AND THEN…..?

Hang around. Talk with your friends. Eat some real PIE!!!!! We are going to have the Altra guys there with an entire fleet of their awesome Zero Drop Shoes! We are going to have two local coaches (Jason of TriCycle and Run and Murray Sarubin of AeroFitness Coaching) who are going to be there to talk to folks about improving their running, cycling and multisport fitness. We are also going to have the registration cards there for the 2015 10k across the Bay!! You’ll be one of the first to be able to register for this wonderful event, going in to it’s 2nd year!!!

So come on out to TriCycle and Run, at 929 S. Talbot Street, St Michaels, MD, on Saturday March 14th, 2015. Try to be there by 8:30 am so that we can get you registered and you can guestimate your finish time for our free 5k! Then stick around and have some food, meet the Altra guys, talk to some coaches and finally, get registered for the 10k across the Bay!!!
