Saint Simons Christian School partners with the Jekyll Island Authority to sponsor the 11th 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.

Also on Saturday, October 9th, 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.
