These 200 people ran for Pi(e)

More than 200 students, staff members, faculty and alums turned out today for the third annual Pi Mile Run at the Jacobs School. We were there to document it all and have pictures here.

Photo highlights below.  Thank you to Victor Chen, from the Jacobs School's Office of Engineering Computing for serving as our photographer during the event.

Congratulations of Dave Berry, a graduate student in bioengineering, who crossed the finish line first, running 3.14 miles in just 18 minutes and 40 seconds. The first woman was Jennifer Kaehms, a fifth-year undergraduate student, who also studies bioengineering and finished the race in 21 minutes and 20 seconds. The first dog finisher was Hiccup, a 2-year-old Shiba inu, whose owner John Chen, is a UC San Diego alum who currently works at The Scripps Research Institute.

Participants received a T-shirt and a slice of pie in exchange for their $10 registration. Proceeds from the event benefit the San Diego Science Alliance.
