By using the so called universal gadget from __libc_csu_init we can read shellcode into the rwx memory segment and return into it.

start hard

By executing read function we can overwrite only last two bytes of read to find something useful and defeat ASLR. Fortunately there is one-gadget RCE located at 0xf0567 in this version of libc, right near the read function (0xf6670). We overflow only last two bytes to defeat ASLR, so that only around 16 attemps needed, because of 4 bit entropy of ASLR.

EDIT: checkout another great solution proposed by agadeint in the comment section below, which is cleaner and does not require bruteforcing and one gadget.
