Under the Oaks poster
The 3rd Annual "Under the Oaks" Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Challenge to benefit Saint Simons Christian School takes place on Columbus Day weekend on Jekyll Island. The 13.1 Half Marathon will start at 7:00am at Great Dunes Park on Jekyll Island followed by a USATF sanctioned 10K at 7:30am and a 5K at 8:00am. Runners can feel good about this event knowing that their participation fee is helping expand a building for the students at Saint Simons Christian School and a portion of the proceeds will be given to the Jekyll Island Foundation. The students have always made the Georgia Sea Turtle Center a part of their educational experience and are looking forward to being able to support the preservation and conservation efforts of the Jekyll Island Foundation with funds raised from the additional 13.1 Half Marathon.
