5 Stars from 23 Reviews



review of 2016 Wineglass Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

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.

Review

Amazing community support and the volunteers truly enjoy being part of the event and helping the runners any way they can. Be sure to give yourself a few extra days either before or after the marathon to explore the region, a whole day alone can be spent in Corning at the museums and enjoying the historic downtown.

Race Tips

Be sure to arrive early for the buses in Corning or Bath. It is the only way to get to the start line in Bath and the last buses get really full.

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

Be sure to check the local CVB's website to see what packages are out there for the Wineglass Marathon. The Radisson is only two blocks from the finish line, but be sure to reserve a room early as they sell out fast.

Great fan support, extremely well run, one of the best finishing medals

Race Tips

if a chilly morning there is not a lot of inside waiting room to keep warm (full only- half has plenty). Nice scenic course in peak follage. Two hills but nothing major.

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

Downtown Corning hotels are now getting greedy, making you stay 2 nights instead of 1.

Flat and fast course. This is the most organized half marathon I've ever run. Beautiful area, I have run it twice and am signed up for my third this year. Perfect if you're looking to qualify for Boston or any of the bigger races.

Race Tips

Flat course. One small hill in the beginning.

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

Stay in Bath at any of those hotels, rather than Corning. The busses run to and from Bath all day

Review

This event is well-organized, with wonderful volunteers at bib pick up and on the course. My 2nd favorite 1/2 Marathon!

Race Tips

Fairly fast, flat course. Have friends from NYC running this year. Taking busses from finish line to start line is the best, so you can park at the finish in Corning. Fall foliage is the beautiful!!

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

Local hotels fill up quickly, but there are many others within a 10-15 mile radius around Corning area. Great restaurants on Market St (Corning) for meals. Park in Corning, take bus to Bath/Campbell for the start.

Beautiful scenery, very well organized, post race refreshments are the best. an overall amazing experience.

Race Tips

Get to the bus pick up early on Market St. The bus pickup was very organized but the lines were very long. Wear extra clothes its quite a wait to the start time in bath. Its cold.

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

I live in corning so I would suggest any restaurant on Market St. Not sure about parking as I walk to the bus pickup.

Review

I've done the wineglass twice so far and it's wonderful. Most of the run is on nice scenic roads through small towns. The aid stations are always well staffed and supplied even when the last few runners come through. My only complaint is that the only way to the start line is by bus and there are no spectators allowed at the start.

Race Tips

Be prepared to get to the buses early because the lines get long fast.

review of 2013 Wineglass Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

Wineglass is a well directed race. The expo was nice with all the Wineglass theme gear one could ever want. Asics was the main brand. The actual marathon long sleeve race shirt is BRIGHT orange. Not a fan of this choice.

Race Tips

The course has a few rolling hills during the first half and is pretty much a gradual downhill the second half. Prepare your quads!! There are very little turns in this race as well. Are BQ's and PR's practical during this race? Sure... under normal weather conditions. This day was unseasonally hot. About 20-25 degrees warmer than average. Unfortunately, for this race, many may not look at Wineglass 2014 as a BQ marathon due to their "fast" stats being lower for 2013. I hope that won't be the case. Next year, if the weather is more normal, this race will be back to its normal production of BQ'ers.

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

We stayed in Bath, where the marathon starts. It was very easy navigation to the start line from Kueka Lakeside Inn. This inn was perfect. I wasted no time wading in the lake post marathon to sooth my sore muscles. (But again, it was 80 degrees! So the lake was a realistic option.)
