This is the highest 5K & 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 public school in Georgia! The Run Above the Clouds is indeed unique. The Run Above the Clouds is a 5k & 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.
