10th Annual Bill Fairbank Memorial Run/Walk/Bike

February 27, 1999 - 12:00pm
Angell Field

The Department of Physics held the tenth annual Bill Fairbank Memorial Run/Walk/Bike event on February 27, 1999. As in previous years, this fun and free event took place at Angell Field on campus. Jane Fairbank, Bill's widow, was the official starter for the race. The winner of this event is traditionally the runner, walker, or bicyclist whose actual time is (fractionally) closest to his or her predicted time; this year's winner was Marie Sotelo.All finishers of the event receive certificates, and the winners' names are engraved on a plaque displayed in the Varian Physics conference room. This annual event is an enjoyable way to remember Bill Fairbank, an avid runner and inspiring person who was a Professor of Physics at Stanford from 1959 until his death in 1989. The next Fairbank run will be held on February 26, 2000.
