The 9th annual “Readers Become Leaders” 5K road race and walk will be held rain or shine on Oct. 21 at 12 p.m. at the Minot Forest Elementary School.

It costs $10 for students to register ($15 on the day of the race) and $15 for adults ($20 on the day of the race). Register online at www.runreg.com.
