The Run of Pi
The "Run of Pi" is a non-traditional fun run. Instead of your typical 5k road race (3.10 miles), the course is 4 hundredths of a mile longer (i.e. 3.14 miles) to debut the "Run of Pi". The race course will be held on the main campus of the University of Houston. The "Run of Pi" is a fundraising event to support Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs in the Houston area. The elementary, middle, and high school teams that are represented with the most number of registered participants will be awarded a grant to support an existing STEM program at their respective school.
