About This Activity

The Run Above the Clouds 1 mile Fun Run, 5K, and 10K races have been reported to be the highest held in Georgia.  The races are over a beautifully scenic but challenging out and back course through the north Georgia mountains.  Occasionally a shy bear is spotted along the route.  The race is held in conjuction with the Indian Summer Festival held at the Woody Gap School.  If you would like to check out the lovely mountain and lake views around Suches, just use Pegman (the yellow man Google icon) on the Google map below.

The proceeds from Run Above the Clouds are used to furnish higher education scholarships to Suches students.  Most of these students attended Woody Gap School, the last K-12 public school in Georgia.
