The Wineglass 8K presented by the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes announces the transition to a virtual event to be held the weekend, July 31 – August 2, 2020.
The virtual run/walk will be held over three days to encourage proper social distancing and adherence to state and local guidelines wherever participants may be located. The virtual race can be run or walked, even indoors on a treadmill, anytime and anywhere in the three day period. Participants can complete the distance in its entirety or in parts as long as the distance covered is equivalent to an 8K (4.97 miles).
The virtual Wineglass 8K will continue to be the first event that makes up the three-race challenge whether you are participating in the Wineglass Pinot Half Marathon Challenge or the Wineglass Riesling Full Marathon Challenge.
Our top priority continues to be safeguarding the health of the community, as well as our staff, participants, volunteers, spectators and supporters. "We believe our virtual event will allow participants to connect with others in a powerful way," says Sheila Sutton, Race Director. "Our goal is to create something you can still look forward to and participate in."
Age Group Awards will be presented as age groups complete the race.
Age Groups: 9 and under, 10–14, 15–19, 20–24, 25–29, 30–34, 35–39, 40–44, 45–49, 50–54, 55–59, 60–64, 65–69, 70+
