Runners geeking out. Math geeks on the run.
Everyone running pi for PIE!!
The typical 5K of 3.1 miles is so old-school. ISC's "Pi K" is so much better because MATH makes it a 3.14-mile run. Or trot, saunter, walk, skip or strut. So start the spring off right and join the Illinois Science Council and Fleet Feet Sports-Chicago on Tuesday, March 14th at 6:28pm (or 2pi) at our Old Town, Lincoln Square and Oak Park locations. Even if you're not comfortable with the conditions for tonight's Pi Day Run, you can still come out and enjoy the pi(e).
March 14, or 3.14, is celebrated internationally in honor of the math constant pi. Illinois Science Council, a Chicago nonprofit promoting science and math, teams up with Fleet Feet Sports to honor the importance of pi and running in our lives with a Pi Day 3.14 mile fun run.
(Note to our fleet footed rule followers -- we know Pi K technically means 3.14 kilometers, not 3.14 miles, but "Pi K" just rhymes better than "3 point 1 4 mile run." It's an artistic choice.)
Each location will have a post-run pi(e) party immediately following the run at the Fleet Feet store including pizza, beer, of course pie, and games with prizes (prizes are for mental ability, not run times)
Important Information: Capacity is neither uncertain nor irrational. Each run venue has a capacity that cannot be increased: 314 people at Old Town location, 157 (1/2 Pi) each at Lincoln Square and Oak Park. So register early and check to be sure to choose your desired location or it will cost you at least $10 to change it later.
The awesome Pi K Run T-Shirt is only guaranteed to runners who register by March 1st. After that, we can't guarantee supply or sizes. It is available in women's and men's small, medium, large and x-large. There is NO PACKET pick-up prior to the run. You will get your t-shirt when you check in. Bag check will be available at the stores and you can change clothes there.
THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR THIS EVENT.
