The Physics Department is pleased to announce that the annual Bill Fairbank Memorial Run/Walk/Bike has been set for Saturday, March 6, 2004. This event is in honor of the late Prof. Fairbank, an avid runner who was a professor of Physics at Stanford in 1959 until his death in 1989. The race is scheduled to begin at noon and should be over by 1:30. The route will be the 4.1 mile Campus Drive loop, beginning and ending at Angell Field, located between Campus Drive and Stanford Stadium.
As in previous years, the winner will be the runner or walker whose actual time is fractionally closest to his or her predicted time. There will be volunteers recording participants' time. The event is to be open and free of charge to all interested people. The winner's name will appear on a plaque displayed in the Physics Department. All people who complete the race will receive a certificate noting their time.
