The Run Above the Clouds offers 10K and 5K road races over a beautifully scenic, challenging out-and-back course through the North Georgia mountains. At 2800 feet, The Run Above the Clouds is Georgia’s highest (and perhaps most scenic) 10K, featuring “the Cooper Gap Climb,” a 230-foot elevation change over a one-mile stretch. There is also a 1-mile Fun Run & Dog Jog, over a mostly flat course.The Run Above the Clouds is a benefit for the students of Woody Gap School, the smallest and only K-12 public school in Georgia. Every year The Run Above the Clouds awards scholarships to graduating seniors and to postgraduates of Woody Gap School to encourage them to continue their education. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As of 2018 both our 5K and 10K routes are USATF certified as well as qualifiers for the AJC Peachtree Road Race. Also, we use the MyLaps timing system. This will be our 19th consecutive year holding this race!
