5th Annual Egg Bowl Run 2017

12:00pm | Calhoun City to Palmiero Center

The Egg Bowl run is one of our newest tradition we have within the ROTC program starting about five years ago.  We get a football signed by Head Coach Dan Mullen and our Professor of Military Science (PMS), and we run from Calhoun City to Palmiero Center.  We will meet with Ole Miss Army ROTC Cadets at the gazebo in Calhoun City where they will pass the ball to MSU so that we can run it back to Mississippi State.  The ball travels approximately 100 miles with MSU Cadets running about 60 miles and the Ole Miss Cadets running about 40 miles.  This is a great way for all of the Cadets, including the rival school, to get together and further build team work between each other.  We would love to see everyone on the side lines cheering us on as we make this long journey!
