Race Preview: 2021 Suddenly Sleepy Sleepwalk 5K

The Suddenly Sleepy Sleepwalk 5K is coming to Alton Baker Park on March 14. This event, put on by Suddenly Sleepy Eugene and Eclectic Edge Racing is to raise funds and awareness for Narcolepsy. Participants are encouraged to show up in pajamas, kid-friendly cosplay, or just your usual race attire for this event.

This is a certified 5K race course with chip timing. There will be water stops on the course and complimentary hors d’oeuvres available afterwards. Raffle tickets will be available with prizes from local sponsors and community members.

Shirts are available for purchase at time of registration. Adult Size Shirts are $20 ($25 for XXL).  Youth shirts are $15.  If you are running virtual, add $7 for shipping and handling to have your shirt shipped to you.

The Suddenly Sleepy 5K Sleepwalk was founded in 2018 by “Chef Andre Royal” to raise funds to help those affected by Narcolepsy and various sleep disorders. In 2019 “Suddenly Sleepy” became an Oregon Nonprofit 501 (c)(3) that now provides fun and engaging ways to support educational opportunities and continues to raise awareness of the importance of quality sleep. Lack of quality sleep is becoming much more recognized as it affects not just those who’ve been diagnosed with sleep disorders such as Narcolepsy- but is important to the overall health and wellness of the community as a whole.

If you would like to support this cause but don’t wish to run in person, there is a virtual option available.

It’s time to bust out your best PJs and head on over to support this worthy event coming soon to Eugene!
