Viper Series Half MarathonTeam Viper, from the United Kingdom, launched their first event on US soil last year, on the Tobacco Heritage Trail. They will be back again this year, with the second Viper Series Half Marathon, which begins in Brodnax and ends in Lawrenceville.

This Half is fairly flat so it is a perfect event for beginners to the Half Marathon distance and also perfect for those wanting to achieve a new PB (Personal Best!)
