The Trent Waldron Half Marathon is a celebration of life for Marcie Trent and her son, Larry Waldron, who were killed on a training run in July 1995. Marcie Trent and Larry Waldron both loved and encouraged running for everyone. Runners and walkers of all ability are encouraged to participate.
The Trent Waldron race benefits Anchorage Young Cancer Coalition, and again this year a portion of the proceeds from this race will go to this deserving non-profit.
Half Marathon early wave at 8am for participants who anticipate needing more than 3 hours to complete the course. Half Marathon start at 9am and 10K start at 9:20am. You must start at your specified time for race-early starts will result in a disqualification (i.e. a 10K runner may not start at 9am with the Half Marathoners).
The Trent Waldron 10K and Half Marathon will have awards for the top three male and female runners using an age-graded calculation. Age-graded scoring allows all individuals within an event to be compared to one another, regardless of age.
Due to insurance requirements dogs are not allowed at this event and we ask that you leave them at home. Strollers are allowed at the Trent Waldron events, we just ask that you start in the back.
This Trent/Waldron Half Marathon and 10K is a Sleeping Lady Challenge event.
