The group of alternating colored permutations is the natural analogue of the classical alternating group, inside the wreath product Zr{wreath product}Sn. We present a 'Coxeter-like' presentation for this group and compute the length function with respect to that presentation. Then, we present this group as a covering of and use this point of view to give another expression for the length function. We also use this covering to lift several known parameters of to the group of alternating colored permutations.
