Spartans Host Successful Gobble Your Giblets Road Race
SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The USC Upstate cross country and track & field programs hosted the fifth annual Gobble Your Giblets 5K this morning.

"It was a great race this year," said Upstate associate head coach Carson Blackwelder. "We had 70 runners who participated, making it the largest field we've had at Gobble Your Giblets."
The 5K began at 9 a.m. with a one mile dog jog and fun run that took place at 8:45 a.m. on the Upstate campus at the Hodge Center. There were also special prizes for the best Turkey costume.
