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 and other time-keeping devices are collected before the race -- you may wish to leave your watches and cell-phones 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 Page Mill Rd., then Arastradero Rd., returning via Alpine 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) or the Physics Department at 650-723-4344.
(Waivers will also be available at the event.)
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!
