Class of 2013 Cadet Colin Chapman, men's captain on the West Point Marathon Team, receives the game ball from the Black Knights co-captains during a spirit rally on Daly Field at the U.S Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., Dec. 7, 2011. The mission -- one which the Marathon Team has upheld for nearly three decades now -- is to run the football from West Point to the Army-Navy game site. This year, the team will run about 280 miles to FedEx Field in Landover, Md. The marathoners added a significant detour to the trip when they passed the World Trade Center site in New York City to honor fallen graduates from both service academies.
