Get your sneakers ready because on March 14 at 9 a.m. there will be a Pi Day Run.

The race is being organized by Ocean City Primary School teachers Carrie Merritt and Erin Porter and is open to students, families and community members.

Post-race Pi Day activities include entertainment, snacks and awards. Overall winners and age group awards will be presented. The first 314 pre-registered participants will receive the school district’s exclusive Pi Day T-shirt.

Participants meet at the Ocean City Community Center, 1735 Simpson Ave., and the race will begin on the bike path at 18th Street and Haven Avenue.

There are two races, a 5K (3.14 miles) and a 1-miler. Cost is $10 for students, $15 for adults and $40 for a family of four.

Pre-registration payment is needed by March 6 in order to receive a T-shirt. After March 6, register the day of the race. T-shirts will be available while supplies last.

Pi Day is an annual national celebration of the mathematical constant pi. Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3/14 in the month/day format) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of pi.
