Kilometers for Kicks 5K
The Kilometers for Kicks 5K is planned and organized by members of the 2017 Kansas 6A State Champion Olathe North Boys Cross Country Team. Our race planning team consists of juniors Jordan Yonce, Jose Guzman, Ahmad Akkam, Brian Beach, James Houlahan, Jackson Caldwell, Cade Heikes, and Jack Spanel first met with Don and Leslie Nottberg of Elite Feet and Shoe Kansas City in October of 2017 with the intent of using our talents in running to serve our community and give others the resources to do what we love. Now, six months later, this idea has become a reality with the Kilometers for Kicks 5K. The securing of permits, website design, course map planning, and more have all been done by sixteen and seventeen-year-olds, but not without some advice from Don and Leslie Nottberg as well as Jennifer Snyder and Amy Vrban of Jadon’s Hope Bug Run and the City of Olathe. We hope you have as much fun taking part in the event as we have had planning it!
