Pumpkin Pi 3.14 Mile Race
Are you a tough pumpkin? Find out this October 27 in Baton Rouge!
This is no ordinary 5k. This 3.14 mile long race on the Mississippi River Levee (by the USS Kidd) is exactly 200 feet longer than a 5k. Take the Tough Pumpkin Challenge and run “the pi” while holding a pumpkin! All participants will receive a finisher’s medal and t-shirt. A special medal will be awarded to those completing the Tough Pumpkin Challenge. Overall male and female winners of the Standard Pi and the Tough Pumpkin Challenge will receive trophies. Additional prizes will be awarded by age group and for best adult male and female costume, best male and female child costume, and best group costume. This is a chip-timed race with timing provided by Cajun Timing.
