The University of Wyoming ROTC will conduct its annual Bronze Boot Run Friday, October 18th starting with a border ceremony at 12:00 in conjunction with Colorado State University ROTC.

The run is part of the activities leading up to the annual UW vs. CSU football game, known as the “Border War” Game. Each year leading up to the game, the game ball is carried in a running shuttle relay by the ROTC detachment of the visiting team along US 287 to the Wyoming-Colorado state border. Once the ball is at the border and after a brief ceremony, the home team’s ROTC detachment receives the ball and runs it to the stadium hosting the game. The entire run is about 65 miles and the UW portion of the run is about 30 miles.

This year’s run will be held 18 October and will start with CSU’s ROTC running the ball from their stadium at 5:30 a.m. where the ball is expected to arrive at the Colorado/Wyoming border at 12:00 noon where there will be a ceremony to hand the ball off to the UW’s ROTC detachment.

Once the ceremony is over, the UW ROTC Battalion will run the game ball from the border to Spring Creek. The Battalion will then form up and run from Spring Creek through Laramie in a battalion formation with police escort to the intersection of Grand Ave and 20th street for the final run into War Memorial Stadium with the game ball. Local authorities will be providing escort and route control including the Albany County Sheriff, Wyoming Highway Patrol, Laramie Police Department and UW Police Department.
