Course Fluid : For Runners

On-Course Support - Water Stations 


The replenishment drink on the Wineglass course (marathon and half marathon) will be Lemon-Lime Gatorade. This will be made up at each station from powdered mix. Gatorade will be available starting with the 2 mile water station.


The current plan is to have marathon water stations located at the following approximate mile locations - 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13.3, 14, 15.8, 17.5, 19, 20.5, 21.5, 22.5, 23.8 and 25.1 (last station). This corresponds to the following distances for the half marathon - 0.9, 2.7, 4.4, 5.9, 7.4, 8.4, 9.4, 10.1 and 12.


Gatorade will be offered first (initial tables) with water offered last (later tables) at each station.


GU and/or Powergel (flavors will be announced later, but we expect to have 5 or 6 available including chocolate and espresso of course) stations will be set up with the 13.3 mile water station and with the 19 mile water station. 


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!
