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.
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.
Register online at runsignup.com or print and mail the registration form. Online registration will close at midnight on Wednesday, May 3rd. You can also register in person the morning of the race. (Print and bring the registration form if registering in person.)

Each person registered for the 5K and Kids 1-mile race will receive a participation medal. Special awards will be given to the top male and female finishers overall, as well as the top male and female finishers over 40 years of age. Medals will also be given to the top male and female in each of the following age groups: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+.
KC Running Company utilizes the IPICO Sport Timing System to track your results, team results and award category results. Quick post-race results and communication will be posted on the ‘results’ section of this website. Each registered participant will receive a free bib number, pins, and timing chip ties.
This is a rain or shine event; no back-up rain date is planned. No refunds will be given even if the race is canceled for unsafe weather conditions such as a tornado. Otherwise we will run in rain, cold, or snow!
Want to volunteer? Awesome! Tower 2 Tower wouldn’t be possible without help from volunteers to check-in runners, help them navigate the course, and cheer them on as they return. For more info, contact Kelly Fry at firstname.lastname@example.org or (913) 895-5543.
