Race Bibs Arrive


Our race bibs are here! The count down to Saturday’s Pi Run is on and we are looking forward to hosting all our runners! If you haven’t registered, do it today by visiting our website. Online registration closes soon, so if you miss your chance, join us before the race on Saturday morning to register. We will be ready for you at 8:30 a.m. at Highland School, 801 Central Avenue N. in Crookston, Minnesota.

Join us to run pi followed by a piece of pie! Can’t wait to see you on Saturday and cheer you on in The Irrational Race!


Runner Registrations

The runner race registrations are coming in and the weather is very enticing for running this weekend in preparation for our race on Saturday, April 25. The race bibs are on their way along with the shirts so we will be ready when you arrive.

We will accept registrations prior to the race, but register early for the best chance to take home a shirt in your desired size! Remember all proceeds support of the Polk County Historical Society’s restoration of the Carnegie Building in Crookston.

We appreciate everyone who comes out to run the fifth annual Pi Run. Thank you, runners!

Final Two Weeks until the Pi RUN!

We have been picking up door prizes and planning the set-up at Highland School for the 5th annual ALD Pi Run. The routes are set, and we are excited to welcome the 2015 group of runners on Saturday, April 15.

If you haven’t registered, you should, and it’s easy. Visit our Alpha Lambda Delta Pi Run Active website to enter your name, shirt size, etc, to the growing field of runners.

Remember there are events for the whole family including a 5K (pi), 10K (2 pi) and a kids’ fun run (slice of pi) so join us for a great day of running followed by pie for all our runners. It’s a sweet ending to a fun race!

Running weekend ahead

Running burns almost 700 calories per hour! What makes all that running and calorie burning more fun is when you put it to the test in a race. The Pi Run 5K and 10K, along with the Kids Fun Run, make Saturday, April 25 a great family day with fun for everyone!

Encourage anyone you know to consider participating in the Pi Run. You don’t have to run. If you walk the 5K, you will burn about 250 calories so get out there this weekend and walk, jog, or run, whatever you choose, you will reap the benefits. AND, you will be race ready come Saturday, April 25!

Don’t forget to register. Visit http://z.umn.edu/uwg today.

Shirt order goes in next week!

It is hard to believe but the 2015 Pi Run is coming very soon. Our shirt order will go in next week so be sure to register before next Monday to ensure you get the size shirt you want.

The race shirts for this year are long-sleeved, Nike Dri-FIT, and you are going to love them. What is better than running in a great shirt? Nothing! That is why you need to register today at http://z.umn.edu/uwg

Also encourage your friends and fellow runners to run Pi. Share the link and encourage them to run or walk! We would love to have them join us.

All this running will benefit the restoration of the Carnegie Building in Crookston. This ongoing project is the work of the Polk County Historical Society, and we are excited to be a part of this preservation of area history.
