Trail run on a smooth, fast course with a few hills sprinkled in for fun.
The Pi Miler, starting at 7:30 am, is 2 loops of different distances, totaling 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 counterclockwise and clockwise directions.
The Pi Day River Rotation Full Marathon is back for its second year! Starting at 8:30 am, runners will take a short lap, and 5 longer loops bringing you to 26.21 miles.
The Pi Slam is the original combo race for the Pi Day Races for those wanting to add a little more distance (and race swag) to their day. It is a combination of the Pi Miler and the Pi Day River Rotation Half Marathon. The Pi Slam will begin at 7:30 am and follow the course for the Pi Miler, and will begin again at 9:00 am with the Pi Day River Rotation Half Marathoners, following the course for that race.
The Ultra Pi Slam is for those wanting to add even more mileage. It combines the Pi Miler and the Pi Day River Rotation Marathon. The Ultra Pi Slam will begin at 7:30 am and follow the course for the Pi Miler. They will then toe up again at the starting line at 8:30 am with the Pi Day River Rotation Marathoners and follow the course.
For those who can't get enough, or want to try out ALL the distances, The Answer to Everything is for you. The Answer to Everything (42s) will begin at 7:30 am with the Pi Milers and follow the course for the Pi Miler. They will then line up again at the starting line at 8:30 am for the Pi Day River Rotation Marathon. When 42s complete the marathon, they will check in with one of the RDs, where we will line you up at the starting line for your own personalized start time to begin the Pi Day River Rotation Half Marathon.
For all distances, there will be a single aid station located at the trailhead and an aid station at the finish line. Runners in the marathon and half-marathon will pass the aid station at 5-mile intervals. Water, Tail Wind, Honey Stingers, fruit, and other items will be available at the aid station.
After the race, take in the second half reason for the race and enjoy some homemade pie at the finish line!
All finishers will receive a race shirt, finisher's award, and car vinyl with distance. This year we are working with Trailheads again to bring a custom cold weather running cap for your swag.
Pi Day hoodies will be back.

In an effort to continue the Lawrence Trail Hawks mission of Kindness to Life and Land, we are requiring runners to bring their own hydration devices. We will provide a few community cups at the aid station if you are brave enough to use them. There will be some cups available to runners for hot beverages only. Please help us with this transition by ensuring that you bring a hydration device, no matter what distance you run. Thanks!
