Registration for the 2015 Oak Barrel will open Monday, October 27th at 6:00AM Central
The course is now a certified half marathon (TN13057MS). When initially set up the course, we knew it needed to be accurate and we measured it using the procedures called for by USA Track & Field. We have recently gone through the paper work to get the course certified.
We will have our Whiskey Hill Preview run on several upcoming Sunday mornings. These runs give you a chance to experiance Whiskey Hill before the big day. These runs are a 7 mile loop that take in about 5 miles of the Oak Barrel Half marathon course that include ‘Whiskey Hill’. The ‘Whiskey Hill’ preview runs will start at Woodard’s Market and Deli in Lynchburg (1415 Fayetteville Highway, Lynchburg, TN). The start time for the runs will be 10AM. These will be group runs with self serve water stops and the course will be marked.
Whiskey Hill Preview Runs (Sundays):
They all start at 10AM from Woodard’s Deli (1415 Fayetteville Highway, Lynchburg, TN).
