This challenging and beautiful 7.2-mile run/walk from the Summit campus in Gering to the summit of Scotts Bluff National Monument and back has become a favorite early spring community outing.

A pancake breakfast with free-will donations will be served throughout the morning for the runners, family members and the community, along with kids’ bounce houses and other family-friendly fun, including a probable landing by Air Link helicopter.
