Event details and schedule

Brief Description: Pi day is back, and what better way to celebrate than with a Pi K? Pi day is March 14 (Pi=3.14, pretty neat huh:-)). We're celebrating at Roadrunner Sports in Marietta with a Pi K (about 1.95 miles).   The race starts at 6:30 pm and we'll have shirts & awards for the top 3 overall M/F, as well as the top 3 masters M/F. Keeping with the theme of the day, we'll be ordering plenty of Pizza Pi's for everyone to enjoy when they're finished.
Event Beneficiary: We'll be donating a portion of the proceeds to the local schools S.T.E.M. programs or science clubs, so be sure to create a team for your school/club, or join one that's already created.
Groups & Teams: Do you have a science club? Are you in charge of the STEM program at your local school? Is your office or neighborhood looking to get involved in something together? Put together a team and you can score a donation back to your group (donations only go to school or STEM groups everyone else just earns glory).
Event Schedule: 5:00 pm…Check in opens. 6:30 pm…Race starts.
Entry Fee & Registration: Individual entry is $20. Participants that are registered by 3/6 are guaranteed a great race shirt in their size (women's sizes to). Registrations after that will receive a shirt while supplies last. Race day registrations are welcome for $5 additional.
Course & Timing: We're in North Georgia, and there's not much that anyone can call flat & fast. So…It's not pancake flat, but it's pretty darn close. The course is an out & back using the back lot of the Merchants Walk Shopping left and then going out to the WIDE sidewalk along Roswell Rd.   We'll be sending everyone out in waves so we don't clog the side walk, so we'll be chip timing for the start & finish.
Awards & Goodies: We have awards for the top 3 overall M/F, Top 3 overall masters M/F, Awesome shirts guaranteed to all participants registered by 3/6, afterwards they're available while supplies last. Since we're doing a wave start, set up a little more like a time trial, we'll be giving out all awards based on chip time.
Finish Line Pizza Party: We'll be ordering pizza's for all the runners to enjoy, as well as some other standard finish line refreshments.
Five Star Turkey Trot: All participants will automatically qualify for FREE entry into the Five Star Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot. see event website for details.

With that in mind any competitor, spectator, parent, volunteer, or sponsor, exhibiting unsportsmanlike conduct or interfering with the positive, competitive atmosphere of the event will be asked to leave the venue and course immediately with no refunds.
