704 Blue Run

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.

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!

Registered Participants will be chip timed and receive a performance style t-shirt.

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