19th Annual Bill Fairbank Memorial Run/Walk/Bike

March 15, 2008 - 12:00pm
Rodin Sculpture Garden (corner of Roth Way and Lomita Drive)

* No entry fee and free refreshments *

The winner, as in years past, will be the runner, walker, bicyclist, etc. whose actual time is (fractionally) closest to his or her predicted time. (Of course, all watches are retained by the starter; or leave your watches at home.) 
 
The runners and walkers can take Roth Way to the Campus Drive-Junipero Serra loop (4.2 miles), while the bicyclists can use a loop out to Arastradero Rd. on Alpine Rd., returning via Page Mill Rd (11.5 miles). However, you may use any route and mode of transport. 
              
The winner's name will appear on a plaque displayed outside the Physics Dept. main office. Volunteers (especially timers) will be needed. If you have any questions, please contact Rosenna Yau (rosenna.yau@stanford.edu) or Bob Wagoner (wagoner@stanford.edu).
 
An avid runner and an inspiring person, Bill Fairbank was Professor of Physics from 1959 until his death in 1989.  This is an event sponsored by the Physics Department and is open to the general public.  All are welcome!
