SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The USC Upstate cross country and track & field programs are set to host the fifth annual Gobble Your Giblets 5K Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24.
The yearly event helps raise money for the Upstate track & field and cross country teams. The Spartans hope to not only raise money for their athletic programs, but to promote a healthy lifestyle in the Upstate community.
"Gobble Your Giblets 5K is a Thanksgiving tradition and a good way to get the community active," said Upstate associate head coach Carson Blackwelder. "This will be the fifth annual race and it has grown every year. The more people we get out there the better the event will be."
The 5K will begin at 9 a.m. with a one mile dog jog and fun run set for 8:45 a.m. Registration at the event will start at 7:30 a.m. on the Upstate campus at the Hodge Center. The registration fee for the 5K is $25 and $20 for the dog jog. There will also be special prizes for the best Turkey costume, so dress up your dog or yourself.
