  4. The Glenside Fire Company – Stop, Drop & Run 5K is a fundraiser that benefits the all-volunteer Glenside Fire Company No. 1 in Glenside, Pennsylvania. Both the 5K run and our 1.5 mile “fun” walk/run will start and finish at the Glenside Fire Company Firehouse at 210 W. Glenside Avenue in Glenside. This is conveniently located across the street from the Glenside Train Station for anyone using public transportation. The run will take two loops through the scenic streets of Glenside. A few rolling hills throughout the course will provide just enough of a challenge to satisfy any level of runner. The 1.5 mile walk/run will be untimed, but will follow the same course, completing just one loop. Register here. - After the Race - Come for the exercise, but stay for the fun!!! All race participants will be provided with a breakfast sandwich and/or fruit, along with plenty of water.
