Secret City Half Marathon & 5k Donation to Oak Ridge TORCH

Oak Ridge, TN (December 6, 2021) - The 13th annual Secret City Half Marathon & 5K was held on November 20th at Melton Lake Peninsula. The 2021 races welcomed 750 in person participants and nearly 100 virtual participants from all over the country.

Thanks to numerous participants and on behalf of Explore Oak Ridge, the Secret City Half Marathon & 5K is proud to donate $2,500 to the Tennessee Out-Reach Center for Homeless of Oak Ridge. TORCH aims to serve the homeless, those who are in jeopardy of becoming homeless, and those who are not able to receive services elsewhere due to lack of documentation (i.e. no ID, no phone, no address - or other limiting factors). TORCH works to help Anderson County residents obtain the basic necessities to receive services. Learn more about TORCH in Oak Ridge at
