Fourth Annual Foodie 4 Mile Run Benefiting the Northeast Farmers Market Saturday, May 21

Fourth Annual Foodie Four Mile Run Benefiting the Northeast Farmers Market Saturday, May 21, 2016 Opening Day of the Market
Registration Now Open

[MINNEAPOLIS – May 16, 2016] The Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market announces The Foodie Four Mile: Race to the Market. It will be a fun run held Saturday, May 21, starting at 8:00 a.m., one hour before the Market opens the season.

Organizers say that the event's purpose is threefold, encompassing a fun run, a fundraiser, and celebration of the 2016 season Market opening. Costumes, dogs and strollers are welcome. This is a zero waste event.

The four mile course will be an excellent opportunity for runners and walkers of every skill level to enjoy a run or walk in Minneapolis' most historic and beautiful areas. The run starts in Northeast at B. F. Nelson Park (400 Marshall Street NE), winds along the Mississippi River through the St. Anthony West, Nicollet Island, and St. Anthony Main districts. After crossing the Stone Arch Bridge, the second half of the run will go through the wooded west side riverfront parks and Boom Island Park.

A portion of the event proceeds will also go to The Food Group's Harvest for the Hungry program. Harvest for the Hungry purchases fresh, locally-grown produce from Minnesota and Wisconsin farms to provide to Minnesota households facing hunger.

As a “Foodie Rally,” the run is a unique opportunity for fitness-conscious foodies to celebrate the Market's seventeenth season, enjoy awesome post-race treats, receive unique dish towel and market bucks to spend at the market during the 2016 season. Runners are encouraged to make it a “Foodie Four and a Quarter” by jogging to the Market to spend their bucks at the market after enjoying refreshments at the finish line.

The Northeast Farmers Market is located on the corner of 7th Avenue NE and University Avenue NE in the St. Boniface Church parking lot.
