Wineglass Weekend is fast approaching!  We hope you’re joining us October 3-5 in New York’s beautiful Finger Lakes. We’re welcoming a record field of almost 6,000 runners to our flat, fast and scenic course from Bath to Corning with its picturesque finish on Historic Market Street.  The Corning Museum of Glass is our new host of the Wineglass Expo where you’ll see an expanded array of vendors and our world class museum.  Named one of the country’s top destination marathons, the 33rd Annual Wineglass Marathon has a new start time (8:15AM) and a new requirement to take a bus to the start line – no drop-off or parking at the start.  Make sure you’re familiar with the new requirements so you have your best run on Sunday! The wildly popular Wineglass Half Marathon in its fourth year goes off at 7:45AM on Sunday.  Named a “must-do” half marathon, this very popular distance filled to capacity before the full marathon and is sponsored for the first time by Seneca Lake Wine Trail. We love that so many runners make the Wineglass their first-ever half marathon. We want everyone to take part in the weekend, so come join us for the Wineglass 5K at 8:30AM on Saturday, October 4.  It’s a fun and easy warm up, and is the one weekend race where REGISTRATION IS STILL OPEN!
