Join us for the 8th Annual UNDER THE OAKS RUN through historic Jekyll Island. The scenic flat and fast courses are USATF certified and races are USATF sanctioned.

Saint Simons Christian School has partnered with the Jekyll Island Authority to sponsor this annual 13.1 Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K on beautiful Jekyll Island. The Under the Oaks Run is an enjoyable event for competitive and casual runners alike. Race participation fees help support SSCS students and a portion of the proceeds are given to the Jekyll Island Foundation to fund conservation initiatives including the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.
