Please join us for the 8th Annual Glow for Life 5K & 1M to benefit Bartow Family Resources!  

This amazing race takes place just after sunset in beautiful Sam Smith Park in Cartersville, GA. Hey, 2021 is a new year and we are super excited to be back to live and in-person racing for Glow Run 2021! 

"Wave Starts" With everyone's safety in mind, we are still being cautious, so in an effort to minimize group size, this year's race will be run in "waves" that will take place approximately 45-90 seconds apart.  Once again registration and race staging will take place at the lower soccer fields at Sam Smith Park located at 1155 Douthit Ferry Rd., Cartersville, GA.

BAM!  BOOM!  FIREWORKS!!!!  It will once again be a fantastic evening with events kicking off at 6:30 PM and culminating with one of the largest fireworks shows in all of N. Georgia at approximately 9:00PM.

The 5K Course is super-fast and (mostly) flat (except for the one hill…but don’t worry…what goes up, must come down!) and is a Certified Peachtree Qualifier.  Come and enjoy the fully RFID Chip-timed race by our friends from Wire2Wire Running.  

This is a USATF-Certified Course: (GA18016WC)

Your Race Entry Includes:
A one of a kind, high-quality “Glow Run” T-Shirt
A super-cool “SWAG bag!”
And of course, a donation to Bartow Family Resources on your behalf

Pre-Registration will run until Sunday evening, March 21st, at 11:00 PM. 

Pre-Race Packet Pick up will once again be held from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM on Friday, March 26th at the Bartow Family Resources Office located at 200 Leake St., Cartersville.  This year’s packet pick up will be “drive through” in order to minimize crowd size and contact. 

There will also be additional COVID-19 Protocols that will be communicated to you prior to the race.

We are asking a few of our key partners to rally their friends, family, and networks to support our work. By becoming a fundraiser for Bartow Family Resources, you will help more women and families in our community through our life-affirming services. Together, we can hit our fundraising goal!  Once you hit your $100 base goal, you'll receive a free 5K race entry.  Link here to become a Fundraiser:

We look forward to seeing you March 27th!
