Sleeping Lady Challenge

We have received a number of inquiries from runners over the past few weeks who want to know if they can still qualify to receive a medal for completing the Sleeping Lady Challenge. The answer is YES, if they have already completed one of the Trent/Waldron races (TWGHM or 10K) and/or the Runfest 5K, Half Marathon, Marathon or 49K Ultra. To qualify for the medal you must complete three of the four Sleeping Lady events. See the chart below.

The Sleeping Lady Challenge is an opportunity to earn recognition for completing multiple Anchorage Running Club events in 2017.  This exciting new challenge and medal offers the chance to mark accomplishments and commemorate your hard work and dedication.


Runners who complete the Sleeping Lady Challenge will receive their medal 4-6 weeks after the Zombie Half Marathon and an e-mail with details regarding medal pickup. 

If possible try to register using the same first and last name, address, and date of birth for all events. If your records don’t match for some reason you will need to let us know.

On line registration is available for the remaining two qualifying events at the links listed below.
