It's going to rain pie on March 13 in the Jacobs School Bear Courtyard

The design for this year's Pi-Mile Run/Walk T-shirt.
Pies will be falling from the sky on Friday, March 13 at the Jacobs School of Engineering, more specifically in the Bear Courtyard. Dozens of people will also be running--but not because of the flying pies.
It's all part of Pi Day celebrations at the Jacobs School, which will be held a day early this year, since the actual Pi Day, March 14, falls on a Saturday.
Festivities will start with the Pi-Mile Run/Walk, which takes participants through a 3.14-mile course around the Jacobs School , RIMAC and Calit2. The start and finish line are in the Bear Courtyard. Registration is $10 and includes a free T-shirt and a slice of pie. Proceeds from the event go to the San Diego Science Alliance, an organization that promotes science education in kindergarten through 12th-grade in San Diego.

The run, organized by the Jacobs Graduate Student Council and the Triton Engineering Student Council, will be followed by the Pie Drop, organized by honor society Tau Beta Pi, a national engineering honors society. Students will drop a pie from an unspecified location in the Bear Courtyard.
Here is video of last year's pie drop:

By the way,the actual Pi Day will be extra-special this year: at precisely 9:26:53 the date (if written 3/14/15) will match the number Pi to the 10th digit.
