Pearl Izumi, maker of performance running apparel and footwear, has rallied its sales force, Champion team and specialty retailers to bring their respective communities together for 3.1415 mile fun runs on National PI (p) Day. Inspired by the National PI Day that celebrates the famous numeral 3.1415, Pearl Izumi will sponsor 3.14-mile PI Fun Runs at almost 60 locations nationwide on National Pi Day, Saturday 3.14.15!

Pearl Izumi (PI) is known among its local community for hosting Fun Runs just down the street from their headquarters in Louisville, Colo. PI Fun Runs attract anywhere from dozens to hundreds of locals. These runs are inspired to get runners of all disciplines outside, staying active and engaging with their local communities.
