2020 Pi(e) Run

About this Event

Time to celebrate the greatest number in the universe: Pi!

In honor of Pi Day, UNC Asheville is hosting a community fun-run. Run or walk (or skip or trot) the 3.14 mile distance, which celebrates Pi’s value. The event is open to the public and has a nominal registration fee of $15.00 if you register before February 15th and $20.00 if you register from February 15th through March 14th. Your registration includes a t-shirt and swag bag. We cannot guarantee a swag bag for participants who sign up after March 1st.

There will also be a Pi(e) Baking Contest! Bring your homemade pies to be judged and eaten by runners, and win a prize! Be sure to let us know when you register if you're bringing a pie for the contest. If you are interested in just doing the pie baking contest and not running please fill out this google form: Google Form for Pie Baking Contest

New this year we will also be having a raffle with items from our generous sponsors. Each Pi(e) Run entry will grant you one raffle entry, but to increase your odds, you can also buy more on the day of the event.

Proceeds will benefit the Asheville Initiative for Math at UNC Asheville and its Marvelous Math Club at Pisgah View Community Center. Marvelous Math Club uses math as a catalyst to build leadership skills, create community and provide a space where elementary school students can grow academically and socially.

The Pi Day Run is a chance to show your support for math literacy, which enhances our ability to solve problems, understand statistical concepts like risk, and to communicate effectively with numbers. Math literacy is an essential skill in our current workforce environment and will continue to grow in importance for personal economic success.
