The 10th running of the NK5k road race and walk to benefit North Kingstown High School scholarships is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12, at 9:30 a.m. Race registration begins at 7:30 a.m. at the high school track and field.

The NK5k is open to everyone from serious runners to strolling kids, and features a flat, speedy course with an Olympic-style finish onto the school track.
