17th Annual Random Distance Race 2019

Friday, April 26, 2019 - 4:30pm


The Track Gesling Stadium

Do you hear that? The sound of randomness, accumulating as the springtime approaches?  That’s right, the ENORMOUS FUZZY DICE are back! It’s time for the 17th annual Random Distance Run!

How long will the race be?

Nobody knows! All we can say is that it will be somewhere between 1/2 mile and 3 miles (between 2 and 12 laps of the track). The exact number of laps will be specified by the sum of two ENORMOUS FUZZY DICE rolls - one occurring just before the start of the race, and one just before the first runner finishes the number of laps specified by the first dice roll. 

Registration: 4:00-4:20 pm
Race Starts Promptly at 4:30 pm.

Registration is available via an online form.  The registration fee is $12.

Please register early to guarantee a spot! The online form will be open until 4:00 pm day-of. We will also have race-day registration on the track from 4:00 - 4:20 pm.

Awards:  Everyone gets a newly-minted T-shirt (delivered after the race), and additional prizes will be given to:

  • The random finisher (the person who finishes in the place specified by the dice rolls)
  • Top Male and Female
  • Top Student/Advisor Pair (so get your advisor(s)/students(s) to sign up too!)
  • Everyone who guesses the random rolls correctly

May your samples be unbiased,
The RDR Organizers
