Description

Be a part of a NEW GRIT Endurance Challenge!  We want to honor the tradition of the "Big Thursday" football game between state rivals - USC/Clemson.  Although there is no longer a Big Thursday game,  this epic state rivalry has continued, except for this year!  Fans from both sides were sad to hear that big game was cancelled for 2020 due to health concerns.  That's why we thought it would be a great year to bring back "Big Thursday"!  Let's  keep the rivalry going! Join  GRIT Endurance for the Big Thursday Rivalry Challenge - Garnet vs Orange 2020. Represent your Team and Stay Active by logging miles for either TEAM GARNET or TEAM ORANGE!

Here's how the Big Thursday Rivalry Challenge works!

1. Register for the race and pick your team!  Team Orange or Team Garnet.

2. All team members will receive a custom drawstring backpack and a quality long sleeve race shirt in their team color -  Garnet or Orange. These will be mailed directly to you after our challenge ends.

3. Run, Walk or Bike anywhere you choose from November 1 - November 30, 2020. Log your miles under our Results Tab on our Race Registration Site!  Your team will  get credit for your miles.  The team with the MOST miles at the end of the challenge will of course get "Bragging Rights" and will receive a special discount code for any GRIT Endurance event in 2021.
