The 7th Annual HLGU Trojan Turkey Trek will be held on Saturday, Nov. 2. Sponsored by the missions department at HLGU, the 5k Run/Walk begins at 8:30 am on the grounds of the Mabee Sports Complex. Following the race will be a 0.5-mile fun run for kids.
The course weaves through the HLGU campus, along a couple of city streets and through the nature trail, introducing the runners to some of Hannibal’s Hills and ending near the HLGU soccer field. The kids’ course is on campus and completely closed off.
Proceeds from the event will help offset student fund-raising endeavors for HLGU mission trips.
Sponsors of the event include General Mills, Big River Pest Control, Culligan, McDonald’s, Pepsi, Fiddlestiks, Fresh Ideas, and Antioch Baptist Church. Awards are sponsored by the Hannibal Regional Medical Group. The top two runners in each age group will receive medals and the top overall runners will receive $25 cash. The fun run is a non-competitive race. All participants will receive a ribbon and a T-shirt.
