2016 Wineglass Marathon Awards


Glass Finisher Medals

All finishers will receive a hand-crafted glass medal, continuing a long tradition of unique and collectible Wineglass medals.

Cash Prizes

Placement will be decided by the "highest" cash prize. For instance, if a Masters runner places 2nd or 3rd overall, then they would be placed in the Overall category due to the higher cash prize. A $500 cash bonus is awarded for breaking a course record (Open and Masters).

If a runner qualifies for a cash prize in more than one category, the runner will be awarded the higher of the two amounts. For instance, if a Masters runner places 2nd Overall and 1st in Masters, the runner would be awarded the $600 for the 2nd Overall win.

The top 3 winners in both the Overall and Masters catergories will also receive an engraved wine carafe. 

First place = $1,000 | Second place = $600 | Third place = $300

The Overall Male and Female winners will also receive a  stunning Steuben Crystal Disc.

Masters (40+)

First place = $400 | Second place = $300 | Third place = $200
