To the right: Merry Ellefson, left, is the Joker, while Megan Bush, Nelly Ballou, Brittney Lehnhart and Katie Krehlik are the ace, two, three and four of hearts as they run toward the finish line during Sunday morning's 21st Annual "Only Fools Run at Midnight" fundraising race. The runners were competing in the centipede costume division.

At left: Overall winner Gabe Hayden, a former Juneau-Douglas High School runner who now competes for Gonzaga University, heads toward the finish line early Sunday morning. The 5-kilometer fun run raises money for SAIL (Southeast Alaska Independent Living), which helps local handicapped residents live independent lives. There also was a 1-mile walk. Complete results weren't available Sunday night, and they will run in the Empire sports section sometime later this week. The fun run started at 11:59 p.m. Saturday night at Centennial Hall, and runners finished the race early Sunday morning.
