Running of the Trolls 2016 – Community Events



There is a huge event happening this weekend that should be Azeroth’s party of the summer. You know old Carl would never let you guys miss a party!  It is time again for the annual fundraising event “Running of the Trolls” and the hype is building! What is the event for? Let me give you some details!

Gaming For Good

Running of the Trolls 2016 will benefit The Trevor Project, a nonprofit group that is focused on suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and other youth. Running of the Trolls will help us celebrate Pride Month, and encourage our younger members of our community 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 reach out.

This year the Running of the Trolls will be raising money for The Trevor Project and organizers have set a goal of $1000.  Last year, 390 trolls participated so if everyone donates a little, they will hit the goal in no time! You can donate early at their fundraising page: While donations are optional, please remember even small donations really add up. You could choose to donate a penny for every troll who runs! Get creative!

Do I need anything special?

Unlike the gnome run, your character can look anyway you want. Organizers will be inviting trolls into guilds and handling out tabards to participants. You can also type “/join TrollRun” to join the official chat room. You are asked to not use your chopper mount to cut back on server lag or your Tenacle Trinket.

Carl and his wife Ellie joined the faire because they were seeking an adventure like none other. When he isn’t selling fun balloons, he loves to entertain fellow coworkers at his extravagant parties. Ellie spends her days caring for the animals of the Darkmoon Moon Faire, including Carl… her very own party animal!
