Pie Day Pi K was March 11, 2018 

Thanks to everyone who participated!

This 3.14 Kilometer (1.95 mile) downtown Durham run is hosted by Scratch Bakery and Precision Race and benefits Durham Habitat and The House That Running Built. All finishers will receive a Crostada (personal pie/tart)! Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter - which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day, celebrated around the world, is not just for math geeks anymore. It is now PIE Day for foodies, runners, walkers, AND math geeks alike!

Stay tuned for info on the 2019 event!
