Runners from across the Island honor the late Kevin Johnson, a former Vineyard cross country team member who lost his life in an automobile accident in 2004, with the 14th annual 5k for KJ on Saturday, Nov. 24. Participants can run the race and try to set a personal best, or relax and walk the course with friends. Meet on the high school field at 10 am and let the race begin. Proceeds from the race go to the Kevin H. Johnson Cross Country Scholarship Fund. Pre-registration is $20, or participants can pay $25 the day of the race.
