The Story

EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2013

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Dec 31, 2013


Preparation is under way for the 3rd Annual Saint Simon’s Christian School Under the Oaks 10k Challenge and we have big news!  Some of you might know that it was always our dream to bring a Half Marathon to the Golden Isles, and we have done it!  With our partners at the Jekyll Island Authority, we are pleased to announce the 2013 Under the Oaks 10k Challenge and 13.1 Half Marathon to be held on Columbus Day weekend, Saturday October 12, 2013 on the beautiful and scenic Jekyll Island.  As usual we will also offer the 5k so that runners of all levels will be challenged. All three races will be USTF sanctioned (sanction pending) so that both casual and competitive runners may enjoy this event.  

Many of you have been with us from the beginning and we are grateful.  If you have not been a part of this community event please consider it.  We believe the race impacts all of us in some way:

We are promoting a healthy lifestyle for people of all ages.

In the past, runners from ages 5 to 75 have enjoyed this event.

We are supporting children’s education and “giving back” to the community. 

The funds raised from this event go directly to programs and services to maintain and enhance the Saint Simons Christian School.  A portion of the proceeds will also be donated by the school to the Jekyll Island Foundation, for enrichment of programs, such as the Jekyll Island Sea Turtle Center.
