2017 Race Results 

The 6th Annual Spencer C Duncan Make It Count 5K is coming up! This run/walk has become a “must do” event in the running community. Check out How We Make It Count under the About tab at the top of the page to see how we granted last year’s proceeds to benefit many great organizations helping our veterans.

Early registration is $25 until midnight Monday, May 29. After that, registration will be $30. As always, your paid registration will get you a really cool shirt. (Registration by July 15th guarantees you a race shirt at packet pickup!) Register early to get the best deal. Veterans register for free and have the option of purchasing a veteran race shirt for $10.

Back by popular demand is our virtual runner option. If you are out of town and cannot make it on August 5th, we invite you to Make It Count from your own home. As a virtual runner, you can run or walk a 5K, or 500 yards, or even 5 feet—wherever you are, whenever you choose! You can even sit on your couch and just think about running or walking! 

Whatever you chose to do and wherever you choose to do it, please know that we will consider you part of our event. Plus, you are helping veterans by joining in! Click the Virtual Runner option at registration. Register before July 27, and we will get your shirt to you before the run!

The run will start promptly at 7:30 a.m., so plan to arrive early to secure parking, check out our great vendors, and take part in the opening ceremonies beginning at 7:15. Packet pickup details will be available after June 1.

Strollers and leashed dogs are welcome. Please plan to clean up after both.


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?  Our Volunteer Portal is up and running! 

Packet Pickup 

Packet pickup will be available at the Hen House Market at 13600 S Blackbob Rd in Olathe on Friday, August 4th, from 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM.  Packet pickup at Hen House is available for registrations received on or before 7/27.   Look for the packet pickup signs in the drive through grocery pick up area.

Runners packets (including t-shirts) will also be available for all participants including walk up/race day registrants beginning at 6:00 AM on race day at the race sight.
