Rivalry Fan 5k

CLEMSON vs. USC Fan 5k

Hosted at Brewery 85


Prior to the big South Carolina Rivalry game we want to see the fans race it out on the roads! This fast 5k will have fans sitting on the edge of their seats to see who once and for all is the fastest fan base out there! We have a unique scoring style that will challenge every level of runner, age, and gender category! While this is a running event with a competitive category feel free to join us for some pre game action and walk some miles with our team prior to the game! Unlike most major college rivalries, the Carolina–Clemson rivalry did not start innocently or because of competitive collegiate sports. The deep-seated bitterness began between the two schools long before Clemson received its charter and became a college. The two institutions were founded eighty-eight years apart: South Carolina College in 1801 and Clemson Agricultural College in 1889.

Clemson holds a 72–43-4 lead in the series.
