Saint Simons Christian School partners with the Jekyll Island Authority to sponsor the 9th annual Under the Oaks Run- a 13.1 Half Marathon, 10k and 5k to be held on Columbus Day weekend, Saturday October 12, 2019 on the beautiful and scenic Jekyll Island. The courses are USATF certified and all three races are USATF sanctioned so that both casual and competitive runners may enjoy each event. The Half Marathon route will take you 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. The 10k route also travels along the Atlantic Ocean and then turns toward the historic Millionaires Village and then on to the river front. The 5K route is great for all ages and is mapped along a scenic course that includes tree canopied, wide bike paths as well as glimpses of the Atlantic Ocean.
We welcome runners to a course that goes from the beaches to the marsh and under the majestic oaks of Jekyll Island!

VIRTUAL REGISTRATION OPTION:
We don’t want you to miss out on everything that makes Under the Oaks Run so special – the beautiful course, the fantastic volunteers, and the post-race festivities. However, we also know that sometimes important things in life take precedence, and when that happens you can choose the VIRTUAL RACE option. Run the Half Marathon, 10k or 5k where and when it’s convenient for you! Run it on a trail with a friend, on a treadmill at the gym, or on your favorite local streets.
The entry fee for the VIRTUAL race is $45, which includes your race shirt, finisher medal, and shipping cost. Your race package will be mailed out in October to the address you enter on the registration form.
Participants who register for the VIRTUAL event will NOT receive a bib or timing chip, and will NOT be eligible for awards. Virtual runners without a bib/chip are not permitted to run in the live event.
