The Annual Glenwood RSVP 5K
The annual Glenwood RSVP 5K is sponsored by Glenwood Retirement Community and hosted by Friends of RSVP. All the proceeds from the race benefit RSVP of Washington County.
We strive to make the course as safe as possible with Marietta City Police controlling traffic at two main intersections of Scammel Street and Second and Third Streets. A roadblock at front and Scammel keeps the traffic from entering the course and trained volunteers monitor side street road blocks for the duration of the race. We have a Registered Nurse on the grounds and the Emergency Squad is stationed less than a block away. One water stop will be provided at the mid point of the race. A golf cart will follow the last walker and offer assistance along the way to those unable to complete the course. All course crews have access to two-way radios and communicate trouble with each other and with race headquarters.
Smaller age group divisions with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals... coffee & doughnuts before the race... Smitty's Pizza after the race... heavy long-sleeved t-shirts for pre-registered participants... a fabulous door prize drawing... indoor restrooms... We have a great race!! Hope to see you there!
Overall winners, walk and run will receive a beautiful blue fleece stadium blanket.
All participants will be entered in a drawing for an Apple Ipad 2, courtesy of the Friends of RSVP.
