The course at an elevation of 3825' is the flattest course possible on the beautiful plateau where Highlands NC is nestled. It is affectionately nicknamed "The Patty Cake" after one of our local runners who had twin babies and needed a stroller friendly course. The twins have since grown up, but the name stuck.  The Highlands Twilight 5K course is USATF certified, USATF COURSE NC16004DW.  Come on up and see if you are up to the challenge of the plateau.
