Jacob Shelton gives a high five to the race director after finishing the Viola Half Marathon in a record 1:20:10.
With just shy of 400 runners taking the road amidst overcast skies, the third annual Viola half marathon wound through the country roads before its winner set a new race record Saturday morning. Jacob Shelton of Tullahoma led cover to cover and finished a full three minutes ahead of his closest competitor when he broke the tape at 1:20:10. He set a new record despite Viola being his first half marathon of the season.
