If you're a nerd, this is the race for you! It's also the race for you if you're not a nerd, but like running and pie.
Trail run on a smooth, fast course with a few hills sprinkled in for fun.
The Pi Miler, starting at 8 am, is two short loops of 3.14 miles (just over a 5K).
The River Rotation Half Marathon, starting at 9 am, is a 13.14 mile three-loop course, alternating between counter clockwise and clockwise directions.
There will be a single aid station located at the trail head. Runners of the Half will pass the aid station twice, at 5-mile intervals. Water, sports drink and fruit will be available at the aid station.
After the race, enjoy some homemade pie at the finish line!
Finishers of the River Rotation Half will receive an outdoor, durable, magnet with the date and their time.

The River Trails are not that wide, we ask that if you can leave your pet at home, please do so. If you do decide to run with a four legged pal (or a parrot?!?), please make sure they are on a leash and do not get in other runners’ ways.
Headphones are allowed, but if you use them, please only have one ear bud in so that you can hear if a course director or fellow runner needs to tell/warn you of something.
The parking past the levy will not have access from 7:45 a.m. until 8:20 a.m. during the Pi Miler start and again from 8:45 a.m. –9:20 a.m. for the beginning of the Half Marathon.
Both races start at the levy gate into the park, run through the parking lot and on to the trails. Please be mindful of that when parking.
Both races start at the gate on the levy.
