Pi day is March 14 (Pi=3.14, pretty neat huh:-)). 

We're celebrating in Historic Downtown Buford, GA with a 5K AND a Pi K (about 1.95 miles).  The race starts at 8:00 am and we'll have shirts & awards for the top 3 overall M/F, as well as the top 3 masters M/F, overall grand masters & senior masters, as well as all the regular five year age groups 10 & Under - 75+.  We'll be doing just the overall awards for the Pi K.

Keeping with the theme of the day, we'll be ordering plenty of Pi themed goodies for everyone to enjoy when they're finished.
