**Before reading
further you should note that there will be many, many
homemade pies at this event. If anything beyond that
matters feel free to continue.*

A description of the rules and scoring for the 2017
Piathlon can be found here.

In celebration of Pi day
(March 14th), the St. Lawrence Universities Department of
Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics hosts the
annual Piathlon! This is the only known Piathlon in the
world.

What *is* a piathlon,
you ask? A biathlon involves completing two events. A
triathlon involves completing three events. Thus, it follows
that a piathlon involves completing pi events!*

There are prizes (gift
certificates to the SLU bookstore) awarded to the top teams!
100$ (first place team), 50$ (second place team), and 25$
(third place team). There is also a special award for the
individual who can recite the most digits of pi. (The
current record is 386 digits, recited by Mitch Joseph
(Mathematics class of 2015).)
