The 7th annual HLGU Trojan Turkey Trek will be held on Saturday, November 2. The "TTT" 5K Run/Walk and Kid's Fun Run are annual events sponsored by the missions department at HLGU. The 5K Race/Walk will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the grounds of the Mabee Sports Complex followed by the 1/2-mile fun run for kids.

The "TTT" is a combination road/cross country race that weaves through Hannibal-LaGrange University campus. The race starts and finishes near the HLGU soccer field and will take you through campus, along a couple of city streets, and through some beautiful trails. The 5K run is competitive; the 5K walk is not. If you are familiar with one of Missouri's toughest 5K/10K races, the Hannibal Cannibal, this race is NOT the Cannibal, but it will introduce you to a few of Hannibal's hills!

The Trojan Turkey Trek is a fundraising event for the HLGU Missions Department. Students have opportunities each semester break (fall, Christmas, spring, and summer) to participate in missions or service projects locally, nationally, and internationally. Monies raised by the Trojan Turkey Trek help to offset student fundraising endeavors.

Online registration for the Trojan Turkey Trek is preferred. To register go to www.hlg.edu and click on the Trojan Turkey Trek slide. The cost is $20 for adult racers, $15 for HLGU students, faculty, staff, and alumni, $8 for Kid's Fun Run, or $50 for families of up to five people. After October 25, registration is $25 for adult racers and $10 for the Kid's Fun Run. T-shirts are guaranteed for all participants registered before October 25. Medals, individual prizes, door prizes, and the symbolic frozen turkeys will be awarded after the race.
