About This Activity

This is the highest 10K race in Georgia! In the past 3 races a bear has been spotted along the route! All proceeds help students attending the last K-12 school in Georgia! The Run Above the Clouds is indeed unique. The Run Above the Clouds is a 10K road race over a beautifully scenic but challenging out and back course through the north Georgia mountains. The race is held in conjunction with the Indian Summer Festival which is held on the first full weekend in October and will again have a companion 1 mile fun run which is over a generally flat route.

The mission of the Run Above the Clouds is to provide scholarships and other assistance to Woody Gap School students and graduates (up to 4 years) with the proceeds of the 10k road race and 1 Mile fun run, while administering the event so as to make it pleasant and fulfuliining for the participants.
