March 14, 2022
On 3.14, we celebrate all things π by checking in with avid runner and Mathematics Professor Andy Norton about how the the length of a π-k compares to the length of a traditional 5k race. How accurate can he get with the comparisons? Watch below to find out!
Don't forget the College of Science Virginia Tech Pi Day 5K Challenge is today - that’s 3.14 miles (or 3.14159 miles depending on how accurate you want to be!)
Whether you plan to run, swim, bike your 3.14 (3.14159) miles – it’s bound to be great!
