Pi(e) Day Fun Run
March 17 @ 3:14 pm - 5:00 pm$15
Celebrating what it calls “the greatest number in the universe,” UNC Asheville’s Department of Mathematics will host the annual Pi(e) Day Run (or walk, for those who prefer) and pie contest on Sunday, March 17. The 3.14-mile fun run beginning at the Karl Straus Track on campus is open to everyone, with a registration fee of $15 that includes a t-shirt and swag bag. The run begins at pi time – 3:14 p.m. and will conclude with a homemade pie contest – where anyone can bring pies for Marvelous Math Club students to sample and judge. Additionally, refreshments for runners are being generously donated by Geraldine’s Bakery, Standard Pizza, Mellow Mushroom, and Trader Joe’s; additional support for the run comes from Rotary of Asheville – South, and WNC Grand Prix.
Onsite check-in and registration begins at 2 p.m.; advance registration is encouraged and is available online at http://pierun2019.eventbrite.com. Proceeds from the Pi(e) Day Run will benefit the Asheville Initiative for Math at UNC Asheville and its Marvelous Math Club, led by UNC Asheville faculty and students for school children that meets weekly at Pisgah View Community Center, in partnership with Asheville City Schools and the Housing Authority of the City of Asheville.
The 2019 Pi Run at UNC Asheville will be held outdoors even in inclement weather but will move indoors to the Brookhouse Track in the case of severe weather. For more information, email the Marvelous Math Club, firstname.lastname@example.org.
