We are so excited about the 8th annual Race to the Heights 5k which will take place at the Church of the Highlands Grants Mill campus! It will start at the north entrance and proceed onto Overton Road. The "Race to the Heights 5K" is a fun race that offers two different course options: road and trail. The scenic trail course is for advanced runners and is carved out through the woods behind the church. The road race goes down Overton Road and is stroller and pet friendly. We are excited to announce that this years race will include dri-fit race shirts, prizes for top finishers in each category, and awesome door prizes!
The road course is certified by USA Track & Field under measurement certificate code AL14062JD.
