Third Annual Running of the Trolls – June 10th

I’d like to take a moment to give a shout-out to a Tweep of mine, Dravvie and an event called “The Running of the Trolls”.

It’s set to take place on Feathermoon-US, Horde side (of course because TROLLS), and it will begin at 6pm PST/9pm EST on June 10th 2017. No cross-realm characters, so you’ll need a character on Feathermoon-US or Scarlet Crusade-US. They’re going to be in the starting area, so there’s no excuse for not joining in. If you’ve ever wanted to just see what WoW was about, this is your chance.

That’s the fun part, but there’s also a cause they’re supporting. I’ll quote from their site so you know more about the it.

Running of the Trolls 2017 will benefit The Trevor Project, a nonprofit group that is focused on suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and other youth. The Running of the Trolls will help us celebrate Pride Month, and encourage the younger members of our community, both in and out of World of Wacraft, who may most need support and help through their teenage years to reach out for it, and to encourage the rest of the community to help.

Run Info:

The Run starts at 9pm EST (that’s New York City time), 6pm PST. All Trolls will leave the starting zone at that time.

Showing up a few hours early is encouraged and advised. The time that the crew will be on site to invite people will be announced on this blog, Dravvie’s twitter, and the Warcraft Cares twitter.

How do I join in?

To join in the day of: Simply go to Feathermoon-US or its connected Realm Scarlet Crusade US, create a level 1 Troll and log in during the hours before the race.  Our race crews will be there inviting to official racing guilds. You can also /join TrollRun to chat with fellow Trolls. The guilds will have awesome tabards and everything, you just have to mail yourself an heirloom tabard (or purchase a normal one) since they’re Bind on Pickup now.

How to Join:

If you already play, all you have to do is create or have a Troll on Feathermoon-US or Scarlet Crusade-US and log in at the appointed date and time (or earlier!). Contact one of the organizers when you arrive, and they’ll get you into the group. 

If you don’t already play, we’d love to have you! While you can’t join the raid group or become part of the guild, you can make a troll and run with the group. You can get a free trial account HERE, so do it! Have some fun, run around like a crazy troll and help to raise awareness for The Trevor Project.

If you can’t do either, then consider a donation. If you can afford it, they could use it.

Here’s to a day of fun and “Spirits be with ya mon!”
