Run Fast, Slow Food is a 5K Run/Walk which will take place on Saturday September 13, 2008 at 9:00 am. Although this event will be timed and the course measured as accurately as possible the course is not certified.

The run will start and end in Bandemer Park in Ann Arbor. The course will take you through dirt trails, paved bike path, a boardwalk and across the dam at Argo before finishing up along the bike path back in Bandemer. There will be aid/refreshments at the start finish area before and after the race. You can enter Bandemer from Main Street at Lake Shore Drive or off of Barton Drive where it meets up with Whitmore Lake Rd. Your best option is to use the entrance on Main Street due to the fact that more parking spaces are available.

Bandemer Park is new to the park system and is a natural area along the Huron River that is 40 acres in size. The park is accessed off North Main at Lake Shore Drive and off Barton Drive where it meets Whitmore Lake Road. The park features accessible trails through the main body of the park, restrooms, benches, accessible canoe dock, fishing deck, shelter, picnic areas and grills. Dirt foot paths wander throughout the site, with views of the river and other unique habitat prevalent. Brochures are available for this park.

The race is being held in conjunction with the HomeGrown Festival which is taking place at Community High field on Fifth Avenue across the street from the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market in Kerrytown. The event takes place from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm and will celebrate good food, diverse cuisine and our local food heritage and community. Every run/walk participant will recieve a ticket which they can exchange for food items at the festival.

Run Fast, Slow Food is a fundraiser for Slow Food Huron Valley.

Slow Food Huron Valley is a non-profit, eco-gastronmic, member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 in opposition to fast food and fast life. Slow Food supports local food traditions, regional specialties and people's interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
