Only Fools Run at Midnight NEW DATE APRIL 25

Due to the Corona Virus, Blue Raven Productions has taken precautions to postpone the event to Saturday, April 25.  As an added precaution, we will hold the event in an open air environment to reduce chances of coming in contact with the virus inside a building.  The event will be held at 10:00 pm at the new Torpy Park Pavilion downtown Minocqua.   Come support our Model UN High School Club members who are hosting the event.  Exercise & staying fit is the best way to combat cold and flu viruses.

If you have registered for the April 4 event already we will see you April 25, you are all set.

If you cannot attend the April 25 date, you may request a full refund by sending an email to   Please DO NOT cancel the charge through your credit card company as it causes financial hardship on the event planners.  We promise you will get a refund if you request one.


Come in Costume!  Special awards given to the Best Dressed Fool and Best Dressed Groups of Fools.  Registration begins at 7:00 at the Torpy Pavilion.  Music, snacks and beverages will be available to all those that register for the event.  The 5k begins in front of the Minocqua Brewery across the Bearskin Trail, to the back roads of the island, past the famous Little Brown Jug  and finishing back at Torpy Park.  The cost per individual is $25 for pre-registration $30 for day-of-event registration.  A 5K Family (up to 5 participants) can pre-register for $80; $90 on Race Day.

T-Shirts are guaranteed if you pre-register online ONLY.  Race Day participants may receive a shirt based upon availability.
