Description

The Run Above the Clouds is a benefit for the students of Woody Gap School, the smallest public school in Georgia. Every year The Run Above the Clouds awards scholarships to graduating seniors and to postgraduates of Woody Gap to encourage them to continue their education

Course Info

At 2800 feet, The Run Above the Clouds is Georgia’s highest-altitude (and perhaps its most scenic) 10K, featuring “The Cooper Gap Climb,” a 230-foot elevation change over a one-mile stretch. This year we're adding a companion 5K race.

The course for the runs goes by Woody Lake on Highway 60, then turns onto Cooper Gap Road at about the 3/4-mile mark. The turnaround for the 10K is in the small community of Mt. Airy. 

Start time is 9 AM for the 10K and 5K, 9:10 for the 1-mile fun run.
Water stations are provided at three points on the 10K course.

Bears have been known to come out and spectate along the course...

Directions

Suches is located just north of Dahlonega on Hwy 60, about an hour and a half from Atlanta's Perimeter Hwy.

The runs start and finish at the Suches Community Center, across the street from Woody Gap School on Hwy. 60 North in Suches, Georgia (15 miles north of Dahlonega in the beautiful Suches Valley).
