Monumental Challenge


Summit to Summit is a 7.2-mile Run/Walk/Shuttle that starts on the Summit Christian College (SCC) campus in Gering, Neb., follows a paved pathway west to the Scotts Bluff National Monument Visitor's Center, ascends the bluff up Saddle Rock Trail and down Summit Road, and then returns to the SCC campus via the same route.


This 7.2-mile run and walk is professionally timed by RaceRite. The course is beautiful, challenging, and well-organized to create  a race experience unlike any other! 

* This is a family-friendly event, therefore for the safety and comfort of all our participants, no dogs/pets will be allowed on the trail at any time during the event.

We are so grateful for our local sponsors. Without the sponsorships from so many generous people in our communities, we simply would not be able to move forward with Summit to Summit! 

Summit to Summit is brought to you by Summit Christian College (SCC), We have been educating Christian leaders since 1951. We are dedicated to helping our students graduate debt free. Our alumni, partner churches and communities help make that possible for our future Christian leaders.
