Pi: It’s the ratio between a circle’s circumference and its diameter, or about 3.14. That’s why Pi Day will be celebrated worldwide this Monday, March 14. To celebrate locally, the Sacramento Walking Sticks are holding a 3.14-mile walk (close to a 5K) sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association, a walking appreciation organization. Fittingly, it will begin at 3:14 p.m. at pie store/diner Marie Callender’s in Citrus Heights. Participants looking for more of a workout can also choose to noncompetitively run, walk or jog the 3.14-mile route twice for a total of 6.28 miles, or about 10K. You can even pay $3.14 for official AVA volkswalk credit. The route is slightly hilly, passing through San Juan Park and residential neighborhoods, and it’s wheelchair-, stroller- and dog-friendly. And of course, walkers will socialize and dig into some pie after the event. Forget your pie-in-the-sky plans. Get your pi on with the sticks.
