The 7th Annual Spencer C Duncan Make It Count 5K

Saturday, August 4th, 7:30 a.m.

It’s time to register for the 7th Annual Spencer C Duncan Make It Count 5K!  

Each year, we are amazed at the dedication and willingness of our community to come out and support our veterans in what has become a MUST DO event for many.  Last year, people even came out in the rain!!

Early registration starts right now and is just $25 until midnight, Monday, May 28th.  After that, regular registration will be just $30.  As always, your paid registration gets you into one of the best 5K events as well as a really great t-shirt. (Registration by July 22nd guarantees you can pick up your shirt at packet pick-up!)  Veterans register to participate at no cost and have the option of purchasing a veteran race shirt for just $10.  

Once again, we are offering a virtual runner option.  If you are out of town and cannot make it here on August 4th, we invite you to Make It Count from your own home. As a virtual runner, you can run or walk wherever you are, however you want, and whenever you choose!  However you choose to participate, we will consider you part of our event.  Registering is easy, just click the Virtual Runner option at registration.  If you register by July 22, we will get your race packet (including your shirt!) to you before the run.

The 5K starts at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, August 4th. Plan to arrive early to secure parking, check out our great vendors, and take part in the opening ceremonies beginning at 7:15.

Packet pick-up will be Friday, August 3rd from 4-7 p.m. at the Olathe Hen House (look for signs in the drive-thru grocery pick-up area), or you can pick up your packet at the run on Saturday, August 4th starting at 6:00 a.m. (Look for the Registration booth signs.)

Our course is flat and fast! Runners, serious runners, walkers, wheelchairs, strollers and leashed dogs are welcome. 

Start planning now, and we will see you August 4th!


There are a lot of moving parts that turn to make this event happen every year, and none of it would happen without a group of dedicated and compassionate volunteers willing to give their time and energy to our cause.

Are you one of them? Do you want to be?  Volunteer signups will begin soon! Check back here or watch for announcements on Facebook and Twitter.
