EAGLE RIVER - Runners will take it to the streets this weekend in Eagle River as the 3rd annual 5K Moonlight Run starts Saturday night at 10 p.m.

Before the run, runners and their families can enjoy carnival games and activities starting at 4 p.m. in downtown Eagle River. Lots of things to do for the kids and to get the runners excited for the late-night race.

"A great community event. We added the children's carnival, and I think that brings a lot of people out," said race co-coordinator Josh Rhode. "The downtown area business association is also running some sales--the Moonlight Madness sales--along with Art-o-Rama. So there's a lot of things going on in downtown Eagle River."

All of the proceeds will go toward the fitness and wellness center inside Northland Pines High School. Rhode says the nighttime setting adds an unusual element to the run.

"It used to be held at midnight and we moved it to 10 p.m.," he says. "But it is pretty unique that it's a run held at night, so it brings just kind of an added atmosphere and a little more energy to the atmosphere."

The event's many volunteers make the the night possible, and it sounds like it should be a very fun evening in Eagle River.
