Background Information of the races

The Trent/Waldron Glacier Half-Marathon is a celebration of life for Marcie Trent and Larry Waldron, mother and son, who were killed on a training run in July 1995.  The Glacier Half-Marathon was created as a Mother's Day present by Marcie's husband, John Trent.    Unlike most events, this race adds age-graded individual competition to the normal age-group awards.  There will be ribbons awarded for five-year age groups and mugs for the overall age-graded male and female racer.  For the 2,100+ individuals who have ever competed in one of the prior Glacier Half-Marathons, a goal time will be computed for this year's event which matches their age-adjusted effort from their most recent participation. A mug is awarded to individuals who can match or come under their goal time.  The mug provides recognition to your peers that your performance is the same or better than in the past. Marcie Trent and Larry Waldron both loved and encouraged running for everyone.  Runners and walkers of all ability are encouraged to participate. 

The Pulsator 10K race was added to the event in 2013 for runners who might not feel ready for the longer race. The name was derived from Marcie's track club the Pulsators.

Course Information

The start and finish line is at Westchester Lagoon. The race course is an out-and-back along the Chester Creek and University trails. The course is relatively flat with the out portion being a gradual uphill. The water/aid stations are located at miles 2, 4, 5.5, 7.5, 9, and 11. The lap markers on the map indicate approximate miles. Lap 14 is the finish line. Lap 15 can be ignored.

The Pulsator 10K race course start and finish line is the same as the half marathon. The 10K turnaround is adjacent to the ball fields between the lap 3 flag and lap 10 flag on the map. Water will be available at miles 2 and 4.
