The Tyler Brown Pi Mile
The Tyler Brown Pi Mile is a 3.14 mile running trail on the Georgia Tech campus. There are four starting points on campus (east, west, north, and south) and disc-shaped markers and maps along the way to keep walkers and runners on the trail. The sidewalk in front of the Campus Recreation Center is one of the starting points. Maps can be picked up at Member Services or downloaded below.
Named for former SGA President, Tyler Brown (MGT 01, HTS 01), who was killed in Iraq while on active duty, the Pi Mile was dedicated in April 2005. One of Tyler's major goals while in office was to implement a safe, well-lit running trail on Georgia Tech's campus. A member of the ROTC, Tyler would run early in the morning and wanted to make running on campus safe at all hours.
At the time of his death, the plans for the trail were almost complete. Many young alumni, remembering Tyler's push for the trail, came forward and asked that it be named in honor of him. Completed in December of 2004, the Tyler Brown Pi Mile is now an important part of the Georgia Tech campus.
