THE RIVALRY RUN, November 16, 2013 Zachary L. Spreitzer
At 1400 on a brisk November afternoon, 13 cadets from the Chippewa Battalion set off to complete the symbolic 60 mile leg of the annual rivalry run with the Bronco Battalion of Western Michigan University. Due to safety concerns, both battalions conducted the run on their campus, having cadets run a combined 60 miles. Cadets at Central ran either 3 or 6 miles in a two column formation carrying the Central Michigan University flag and a football to symbolize the game ball, calling cadences and pushing through pain to complete their portion of the run. The Rivalry Run is a tradition, and a chance for cadets to show their dedication to the Battalion, as well as their physical endurance.
