Pi is the constant that relates a circle’s diameter to its circumference. Rounded, it is approximately 3.14. One of the most common running races offered to the public is a 5k run, which is 3.1 miles.
We feel it is more interesting to say you ran 3.14 miles instead of the usual 5K or 3.1 miles. Therefore we have created the Pi Run/Walk (3.14mi) and the 2 Pi Run (6.28mi). The race proceeds support the renovation of the Crookston Carnegie Library.
Everyone can participate! The Pi Run/Walk is open to men and women of all fitness levels and we welcome strollers and you are welcome to run or walk. Online registration is open through April 16. If you miss the online registration deadline, you can sign up on the day of the race at Highland Elementary School.
The races start and end at Highland Elementary School in Crookston (801 Central Avenue).
This year the race is on April 18, 2020.
Race day times are as follows:
8:30 AM: Registration/Packet Pickup Begins
9: 30 AM: Slice of Pi Kids Run begins
9:45 AM: Sponsors Recognized at the Starting Line of the Pi Run (3.14 mile run) & 2Pi (6.2 mile run)
