Pi Day 5K is back! With more running, geekery, and epic pi portions! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿด

Hereโ€™s one undeniable fact: Pi Day is on its way, and this momentous occasion calls for an irrational celebration of equal parts geekery and scrumptiously delicious slices of *om nom nom*! ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿด Indulge in this numerical masterpiece of pi (get it?) by partaking in the 3rd Annual Pi Day 5K! The Pi Day 5K is a flexible alternative to traditional races -- you can run or walk, regardless of where you live and on your own schedule (extra points for running on 3/14). We ship your swag and you run with friends -- fellow mathletes, baking BFFs, and scholarly mini-humans alike! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿด

BONUS: Lots of awards and prizes will be available to win, and the first 100 swag registrants get a FREE pi sticker! ๐Ÿ†๐ŸŒŸ

Pi Day:

Officially recognized in 1988 but traditionally observed for millennia by fans of Archimedes and Rachael Ray, Pi Day occurs each year on March 14th and is generally regarded as an opportunity/excuse for geeking out about math and excessive pastry consumption. ๐Ÿด The overlap of mathematical and baking culture is unparalleled for its significant digits and saturated fat content. Truly, a holiday for the masses, wandering in the desert of early spring after the glut of festivities in December. Fibonacci would approve! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Pi Day 5K (technically 5.05334 K):

To counter the marvelously tasty pastry consumption, go for a run or walk! ๐Ÿƒ The 3rd Annual Pi Day 5K (as featured in Runner's World) is an opportunity for runners, walkers, and math enthusiasts of all ages to celebrate Pi Day by covering 3.1416 miles (or 5.05334 kilometers for those adherents to the metric system) under their own power. Thatโ€™s about itโ€”โ€˜tis a fun reason to run! ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽ‰

Is this a virtual run / walk? You are CORRECT!

What is a virtual run / walk? A virtual run / walk is one that you do on your own time and on the road, track, or trail of your choice. We give you a flexible timeframe to complete your miles and invite you to the super-supportive Pi Day 5K community. Once you're done, you can report your results to our official leaderboard, shoot for awards and prizes, and feel fantastic knowing you just benefitted a nature conservation in a fun way.

Why should I participate in this virtual run / walk? Because what's better than getting fit, getting swag, and having a good ol' time in the Pi Day 5K!? And these reasons:

  1. You'll get some radically awesome, "that's what I'm talkin' about" Pi Day 5K swag to remember your achievements and a one-of-a-kind, zinger of an experience!
  2. Got a group of friends (or imaginary friends), a kid, or a dog that likes running? Someone you'd like to help get in shape? Sign up and add them on to your registration. This is a great way to get your crew out and about.
  3. A portion of every registration goes to support a great charity cause.
  4. A virtual run / walk is a fun, flexible, stress-free way to participate in an event. You get to run / walk on your own schedule AND connect with fellow participants around the country in our inspiring event community.

Who can participate? Everybody! There is no age limit, no restrictions. So run, jog, walk, or crawl (not recommended, unless youโ€™re a quadruped or really really odd). Go alone, in a group, with your pet -- it's completely up to you. Just get out, be your best, and enjoy yourself!

My kid wants to participate, but I'm sitting this one out. Can I sign them up? Kids can be registered to participate on their own.

I have a group that wants to participate. Can we register as a team? Absolutely! Just select โ€œCreate a teamโ€ or โ€œJoin a teamโ€ on the registration website.

Can I complete the run / walk with a group? Yes! We even have an award for most team members, so spread the word and gather your posse!

Do I have to complete the distance all at once or can I break it up over multiple days? Split it up if you'd like!

When will I receive my swag in the mail? Depending on when you register, your swag items be mailed out a couple weeks before the event starts or shortly after. You'll even receive an email notification when it's been shipped.

Do the medals come with a ribbon? Yes, indeed! Every medal comes with a matching ribbon so you can wear or hang your bling!

I donโ€™t live in the US or Canada, can I still participate? Sure can! While not eligible for prizes, participants outside of the US and Canada can join the fun and win awards with our digital package.

I have an APO/FPO address, can I signup for a swag registration? Affirmative! We're stoked to send swag packages to our military service members and their families overseas. (Note: Transit times are in the hands of USPS mail delivery and may vary by location.)

How can I sponsor this event? Thanks for asking! Please send us an email to info@fitfam.com.

Due to the upfront nature of event costs, we cannot offer refunds, transfers, or deferrals. We also cannot exchange t-shirt sizes. Make sure that you are good to go when you sign up! All sales are 100% final.
