General Info

 

What is the date for the Pi Day Dash in 2020?

Saturday, March 14th!  That's Pi Day!

 

Can I walk?

Of course!  There will be HUNDREDS of walkers!  You can run, jog, walk, or any combination of these.  Even if you signed up to run, you can change your mind halfway through.  It's up to you!

 

What are the shirts like?

Breathable to run in, soft and comfy to nap in, and awesome enough to wear 365 days a year.  We'll be wearing ours every day except laundry day!  Unisex sizing.  Email holly@therewillbepie.com with questions.

 
What happens if I become injured after I enter and cannot participate?

That would be terrible.  You can transfer your race entry to a friend and have them participate instead, although we think they should share their piece of pie with you.  Email holly@therewillbepie.com.

 

When and where is the Post-race Pie Party?

The best post-race pie party will be right after the run in Hangar 30 at Magnuson Park.  It's indoors!  You'll stay warm and dry while you celebrate your race finish!

 

When and where is the Cutie Pi Dash?

9am!  Look for the Cutie Pi Tent at registration on event morning!  It's a free event for kids ages 6 and under, and they'll receive a race bib and a surprise at the finish line.  We'll be getting photos of the whole thing so you can cheer your hardest for your little one!  Shirts are not included with this free event, but X-Small event shirts will be available for purchase.

 

Registration

 

Can I register online?

Online registration will open in August of 2019!  Stay tuned!

 

Can I join a team after I've already registered?

Yes, you can add yourself to a team!

 

Can I register Day-of-Race?

Yes, but there's no guarantee that we won't be sold out, or that you'll get the size shirt you want.  Day-of Registration will begins at 8am in Hangar 30 at Magnuson Park.  Cash, check, and credit all accepted.

 

The Course

 

How hilly is the course?

Not very!  It's all inside Magnuson Park.  There is one small hill, but we promise you'll be ok.  Based on 2015 participant feedback, we are changing our course to one-loop.

 

Are miles and kilometers marked on the course?

There will be mile markers along the course, but not kilometer markers.

 

The Start

 

What time does the race start?

Pi Day Dash 2020 will start at 9am.

 

Where is the Start Line?

Across the street from Hangar 30 will be a very large starting archway near the play fields.  The race will finish in the same location, followed by the post-race pie party in Hangar 30!

 

What about parking?

There are parking lots at Magnuson Park as well as street parking.  Unfortunately, we cannot reserve any parking spaces for the race, so make sure to arrive early enough to get your spot or allow time to walk to the race from neighborhood streets!  We cannot delay the start time.  (click for map)

 

Can I bring my...?

 

Can I bring my MP3 player?

Yes, although the Pi Day Dash does not encourage headphone use during its races.  For safety reasons, it may be necessary for a course official to ask you to remove your headset/earphones during the race. You are required to comply or face disqualification and removal from the course.

 

Can I bring my dog?

Yes. Leashed dogs are allowed on course, but we ask that you be considerate of others when seeding yourself at the start line.

 

Can I bring my baby in a stroller/jogger?

Yes. Strollers and baby joggers are allowed on the course, but we ask that you self-seed near the back of the start line.

 

Can I bring my bike/skates/skateboard?

No.

 

Miscellaneous

 

Where can I sign up to volunteer?

Sign up online on the volunteer page!  Or email Holly with any questions: holly@therewillbepie.com

 

Where can I put clothing for after the race?

There will be a gear check in Hangar 30 for all participants!  Please do not leave valuables in gear check, as we cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen items.

 

What is the weather going to be like?

Well...it'll be mid-March.  So, probably cold and wet.  Bring warm layers, use gear check, and hang out at the pie party indoors (warm!  toasty!) in Hangar 30 after the run!

 

 
100% of the proceeds generated by the Pi Day Dash are donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  This amazing event is made possible by boatloads of volunteers, generous sponsors, and Pi(e) Lovers like you!  Our goal is to raise at least $31,415.92 for this great organization.  For more information about the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and how they are working to cure cancer, check out www.lls.org.  If you are running in honor of someone impacted by cancer, please email and let us know.  The mission means a lot to the Pi Day Dash crew, and we love to hear how our participants are standing together.  Thanks!
