704 Blue Run

Revised children’s fun run route and distance
Additions to award ceremony categories


In January of 2015, the Olathe Police Department’s Officer Michael Kern, radio number 704, passed away from a fatal heart attack while preparing for a Presidential escort. In his memory the annual 704 Blue Run was born and is a tribute to his service and all Olathe Officers that have been tragically lost.

Unfortunately, 2018 saw the unexpected passing of Olathe Police Department Sgt. David Williams. He too will always be remembered for his service and forever a member of this tribute run.

Please join us for a beautiful 7.04 mile run or 5K run/walk to kick off your summer! This event takes place on the Indian Creek paved trails and offers you a unique distance of 7.04 miles as well as a 5K run/walk. You will not want to miss this!

Adult participants will be chip timed, receive a performance style t-shirt and will have the opportunity to view online results. We will be awarding the top three men and women finishers in multiple categories of the 7.04 mile run and the 5k run/walk events. Awards ceremony will follow the children’s fun run!

We are bringing back our children’s fun run that will start once the 7.04 mile run and the 5K run/walk events are completed. The children’s fun run will be a short run that is open to children 12 years of age and under. Children registering for this event will receive a t-shirt. Parents/guardians are encouraged to accompany their child/children at no charge.

This event is hosted by the Olathe Police Foundation with the purpose of raising funds to establish college scholarships for Olathe Police Department families.
