review of 2017 Wineglass Marathon.   

3 / 5 Stars

Review

Packet pickup is at Corning Glass, which sounds cool, but the space is pretty tight. Good assortment of vendors, and nice race swag.

The course is pretty easy, and includes only one hill of any consequence. The only problem happens during the first 5 miles. The amount of road space given to runners is way too small. There are cones (and traffic) on one side and culverts on the other side. I saw many runners fall, with one guy needing medical attention. Organizers either need to open up the entire road, or reduce the field.

The finish area was really well done. Lots of music, drinks and food.

I can't recommend Wineglass

Race Tips

The course is just about flat. Almost no crowd other than aid station and family viewing spots.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Get your hotel early, they sell out quick. Set aside enough time to walk Main St, there's a lot of cool stores

Review

The town, race, hotels, workers are all top notch!. Beautiful view during the run. Plenty of aid stations during the run. I liked staying at the finish. We stayed at the Staybridge Suites easy walk to buses and back to hotel. Next door to the expo. Expo was a little small but nice.

Race Tips

Buses ran nonstop. Never had to wait. They had a nice warming tent to wait in. Race Joy is a must, but make sure you have a strong battery life. It worked great with my phone, but died on my girlfriends phone. I lost her at 20 miles..

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Arrive early to enjoy the expo and a little walk through town. No need to worry about where to eat. WE loved all the restaurants in town.

Beautiful scenery, a fast course, inspiring support from the local community, exciting extra-curricular activities (like wine tasting, craft beer, stunning museums, a chance to blow glass...), and great swag make this a race not to be missed.
