About the Trojan Trek
HLGU’s Trojan Trek is a fundraising event that helps defray the costs for the Trojan Cross Country and Track & Field teams. The event features a 5k run/walk combination road/cross country race that weaves through the Hannibal-LaGrange University campus. Beginning at 9 am, the course takes runners through campus, along a couple of city streets, and on a beautiful nature trail. The 5k run is competitive; the walk is not.
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.
