About Summit to Summit

Summit to Summit is a 7.2-mile Run/Walk/Shuttle that starts on the Summit Christian College campus, heads up to the Scotts Bluff National Monument Visitors Center, climbs up to the top of the bluffs and then returns to the campus for one monumental challenge! 


The event also includes a benefit pancake breakfast served by the the Summit Christian College Alumni Association, bounce houses for the kids, and lots of family fun!

* 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 during the event.

Whether a seasoned runner, casual walker, or somewhere in between, Summit to Summit is a challenge for all!


The run is a beautiful but very challenging course, which rivals races such as the BolderBOULDER and the Warrior Dash. In the past, our winning runners have complete the 7.2-mile course in an average of 45 minutes,.


The timed walk follows the same route, offering less strenuous exercise. Walkers can complete the course at stroll pace in under two hours. 


All participants are timed, so you can race the clock, race each other, or  challenge yourself.

Medallions are awarded to the top three runners in each age and gender division. The two top runners (Male/Female) receive a free pair of shoes from one of our sponsors. 

What do we mean by Run/Walk/Shuttle? 

Some walkers may only want to complete a portion of the course. They can choose to walk midway and catch the shuttle either to the top of the Monument or back to the college campus. The shuttle will run from the college to the Monument and back between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Last year, we had just over 300 registered participants. We hope to see similar numbers in this year's event. We have hired RaceRite to professionally time the race with microchips, which will contribute to a fair and enjoyable experience for everyone.
