Why a 5k?

Both WaterOne and the City of Olathe have a passion for water because water touches everything we care about: family, health, safety, and community. We serve our community by bringing award-winning water to homes, businesses, and public places. When we realized that our water towers were exactly 5k apart, we knew we needed to partner up for a good cause.

 

RULES

For your safety, please leave dogs, skateboards, in-line skates and bicycles at home.  Strollers are welcome, but we ask that you walk and please remain at the back of the pack.

 

REGISTRATION

Register online at runsignup.com or print and mail the registration form. Online registration will close at midnight on Wednesday, May 1st. You can also register in person the morning of the race. (Print and bring the registration form if registering in person.)
