Event 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!
