We would also like to thank Tlingit &Haida employees and all those who volunteered, and members of the community that registered, dressed up and made the event fun.

A special thank you goes out to KTOO for the technical assistance and event gear and the Juneau Trail and Road Runners for their technical assistance, course signage and race paraphernalia. Most notably a big thank you to Tristan Knutson-Lombardo who provided extensive technical assistance, guidance and support.

We wish KTOO the best in hosting next year’s Only Fools Run At Midnight event.

Nearly 400 people turned out for the 33rd Annual Only Fools Run At Midnight event in Juneau, Alaska on the evening of June 24. This year’s 5k run and 1 mile walk event was hosted by Tlingit &Haida to promote family activity and wellness while also raising funds for the Tribe’s Alumni Scholarship program. Approximately $10,000 was raised for the scholarship program, which lost its main source of funding (the Annual Spring King Salmon Derby) following the emergency king salmon closure issued by the Alaska Department of Fish &Game.
