Trent Waldron Fund Raising Teams

For the first time we are going to have Fundraising Teams with the Trent Waldron race this year. Participants can create a team or join an existing team in RunSignUp. There will be a special beautiful glass art award for the team who raises the most funds (see the photo below).

In-person Race Details

The Trent Waldron Half Marathon & 10k will take place on Saturday - May 25, 2024 at Margaret Sullivan Part on West 15th Avenue. Cut off time to finish is 12:00 Noon. No personal pacers (runner without a bib) and absolutely no personal bike leads.

Course Information

The start and finish line is at Westchester Lagoon. The Half Marathon 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 aid stations are located at miles 3, 5.5, 7.5, and 10.

The 10K race course start and finish line is the same as the half marathon. The 10K turnaround is adjacent to the Davenport Park ball fields just east of the Lake Otis underpass.

Virtual Race Details

The Trent Waldron Half Marathon And 10K Virtual race takes place May 13 to May 31, 2024. Because this is a virtual race you run it where and when you want on your choice of running course. Please follow all pedestrian safety ordinances including running on a sidewalk where available and not in the road. Follow the rules of the road if no sidewalk or multi-use trail is available and run against oncoming traffic and not with traffic.

Race Information

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 Half Marathon and 10k 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. Please check the results to see if you placed.

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.
