This year Pi Day fell on a Saturday, but it was a once-in-a-lifetime Pi Day because in the year 2015, at precisely 9:26:53 Saturday, the first 10 digits of pi were represented in order by the date and time: 3.141592653.

BRIGANTINE–The 37th annual St. Patrick’s Day Boardwalk 10 Miler and 5K was a rainy, windy affair last Saturday in Margate. A number of Brigantine runners showed up to compete – “rain or shine.” They did well in spite of being “soaked to the skin.”

The race is the traditional start to the recreation running season in South Jersey, and many runners were happy to get out and run, despite the weather.

The first runner to finish the 5K from Brigantine was Matt Hoffman, 9, whose time of 23:15 was good enough for second place in his age group and 23rd overall. That is a pace of 7:30.
