Sorry to inform you, the Trojan Trek will be canceled for October 27th 2018. We will resume the race on Homecoming 2019. Again sorry for the inconvenience.
The HLGU Cross Country and Track & Field teams are comprised of 41 athletes. During the 2017-18 school year, the teams brought home 34 all-conference performances. In 2017, for cross country, the Trojans produced two national qualifiers, Bailey Wagner and Lauren Sisco, and had five ladies under 21 minutes for the first time in the team’s 15 year history.
During indoor track season the men’s track team placed third in conference, making the team all-conference. In the 2018 outdoor track season the men’s team placed second in conference, making the team all-conference. The team also set four new school records in the 4×100, 4×400, shot put, and hammer throw. The Lady Trojans also broke the school record in the 4×100.
This athletic program produces more than champions though. The combined GPA for cross country athletes is 3.28 and for track and field is 3.37.

History of the Trojan Trek
Started in 2006, by HLGU Alum Marisa Brown-Ellison ’98, and originally named Trojan Turkey Trek, this fundraiser quickly became an annual event that everyone looked forward to participating in for the University. The first “TTT” was a part of the school’s fall homecoming, and this year we are returning to that tradition.
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 male and female, overall male and female alumni, and overall male and female masters (60+). Medals are also given to the top two male and female finishers in each age group.
