Saint Simons Christian School partners with the Jekyll Island Authority to sponsor the 13th annual Under the Oaks Run- 13.1 Half Marathon, 10k and 5k to be held on Columbus Day weekend on the beautiful and scenic Jekyll Island, GA. The courses are USATF certified and all three races are USATF sanctioned so that both casual and competitive runners may enjoy each event. On Saturday, October 7th, Half Marathon participants will take a route along a beautiful stretch of the Atlantic Ocean, under the majestic Live Oak trees in the historic Millionaires Village, and then along the marsh and riverfront of the beautiful Golden Isles. Also on Saturday, October 7th, 10k participants will take a route which also travels along the Atlantic Ocean and then turns toward the historic Millionaires Village and then on to the river front.
