The Trojan Turkey Trek is a fundraising event for the HLGU Missions Department. HLGU has been nationally recognized and awarded for the mission emphasis of the College. Students have opportunities each semester break (fall, Christmas, spring, and summer) to participate in missions or service projects locally, nationally, and internationally. The Trojan Turkey Trek will help to offset student fundraising endeavors.
Hannibal, MO – A 5K run/walk combination road/cross country race that weaves through the Hannibal-LaGrange University campus. Race starts and finishes near the soccer field and will take you through campus, along a couple of city streets and beautiful trails. If you’re familiar with one of Missouri’s toughest 5K races, the Hannibal Cannibal, rest assured this race is NOT the Cannibal, but it will introduce you to a few of Hannibal’s hills! 5K run is competitive; 5K walk is not.
