In 2015 on National Pi Day (3.14) the Foxboro Jaycees Road Race returned after a multi-year hiatus. The event, which will be annual, is a fundraiser for the Jaycees and we chose Pi day as the theme — we are grateful to Table Talk pies, who donated boxes of tasty apple pies (each with a “Happy Pi Day 3.14.15” sticker on them!)
The morning’s weather was raw but thankfully snow free and runners and walkers participated in the event:
Starting time – Deena Cummings poses with the runners just before the start of the Foxboro Jaycees Road Race.
Runners are off! This year’s Foxboro Jaycees Road Race was held on “Pi Day,” (3/14/15) and the course was precisely measured to be 3.14 miles. Table talk pies donated a large number of the tasty treat with a “Happy Pi Day 3.1415 sticker” on each pie.
