After serious consideration, we have come to the decision to postpone the Viking Half Marathon and 5k event.
We are working to establish a new date for the event. As soon as we see the light at the end of the tunnel and we are able to establish a new date, we will let everyone know as soon as we can.
In regards to refunds, we are not able to offer any refunds. All fees paid will be applied to the future event date.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please do not hesitate to reach me with any questions that you may have. Thank you so much for supporting the Viking Half Marathon and Start2Finish Event Mangement.
Located in the heart of the fabled Mississippi Delta, the Viking Half Marathon and 5K promises Southern charm, fast times, and an unbelievable race experience. From the time you arrive in Greenwood, you can expect great local culture, an array of fabulous food, and warm Southern hospitality.
The races will begin and end in the historic Cotton Row district of Greenwood and will take you through the flat, tree-lined streets of Greenwood. Racers and spectators will love the beautiful oaks and homes lining Grand Boulevard, once named ”One of America’s 10 Most Beautiful Streets” by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Garden Clubs of America.
The race course also passes by many of the site locations used in the filming of the blockbuster movie The Help, which was filmed in Greenwood in 2010. To top off the weekend, restaurants, residents, and shop owners will welcome you with special menus and activities throughout the weekend. Welcome to Greenwood, a true jewel in the Mississippi Delta.
