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.
More than $11,000 was donated from the 2013 Oak Barrel Half Marathon proceeds to various local charities. The charities receiving donations included: Moore Care; Middle Tennessee Spay and Neuter Clinic; Moore County Volunteer Fire Department; the Moore County High School HOSA club; Franklin County Humane Society; Moore County Senior Center; the local soup kitchen; MCHS Project Graduation; Relay For Life; Motlow Nursing Program; American Heritage Girls; and the Boy Scouts.
