Perks

The O’Neill Center, located at 333 Fourth Street, is a beautiful facility with indoor registration and restrooms. Participant perks include 5-year age divisions with first, second, and third place medals, Tim Horton's coffee and doughnuts before the race, Smitty's Pizza after the race, and heavy long-sleeved t-shirts for all who pre-register.

Everyone is entered into a grand prize drawing that takes place after the awards ceremony. This year's prize is an Apple Ipad Mini.

Grand Prizes

Overall first through third and Masters in walk and run divisions will receive a beautiful fleece stadium blanket.

Safety

We strive to make the course as safe as possible with Marietta City Police controlling traffic at the 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.

The entire course may be viewed on the RSVP map.
