About the TTT
HLGU's Trojan Turkey Trek is a 5k run/walk combination road/cross country race that weaves through the Hannibal-LaGrange University campus. The race takes runners through campus, along a couple of city streets, and on a beautiful nature trail. The 5k run is competitive; the 5k walk is not. The Kids' Fun Run takes place immediately following the 5k run/walk. Each participant in the Fun Run receives a ribbon.
Started in 2006, by HLGU alum Marisa Brown-Ellison '98, the Trojan Turkey Trek has become an annual event for the University. The first "TTT" 5k Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run was a part of the school's fall homecoming but now is its own special campus event that is held on the first Saturday in November.
To confirm accurate and timely results the TTT is now being officially timed. In addition, the timing company provides online registration, multi-location race course timing, and upbeat pre- and post-race music.
Each year HLGU students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends from across the country (and sometimes world) participate in this annual event. Awards are given in a variety of categories including: overall winners for both men and women, overall alumni (both men and women), overall masters (both men and women).
The Trojan Turkey Trek is a fundraising event that helps defray the costs of mission trips for HLGU students. HLGU offers its students opportunities each semester break (fall, Christmas, spring, and summer) to participate in missions or service projects locally, nationally, and internationally. The money raised from the Trojan Turkey Trek helps to offset student fundraising endeavors.
