Foodie 4 Mile – Race to the Market on Opening Day!

The Foodie 4 Mile is a fundraiser for the Northeast Farmers Market and the Emergency Foodshelf Network.

Our first ever fun run will take Market goers literally over the river and through the woods...

We'll start in Northeast at the iconic Pioneers Statue in B.F. Nelson Park, then wind along the Mississippi River through the St. Anthony West, Nicollet Island, and St. Anthony Main districts. After crossing the Stone Arch Bridge, we'll enjoy a different view of the riverfront, then pause under the Hennepin Avenue Bridge for a drink of water. The second half of the run will take us through the wooded west side riverfront parks and Boom Island Park, and then it's back to B.F. Nelson for refreshments!

With a name like Foodie Four Mile, you know it's going to be good. We've lined up our friends at the Eastside Food Co-op, Equal exchange, and Great Harvest to provide the after race smorgasbord. Highlights include cookies, bananas, trail mix, wheat biscuits, and iced coffee and tea.

This is a green event with no plastic bags or bottles! Dogs, strollers and costumes are welcome!
