Cash Prizes

The Wineglass has increased its cash awards by 40% for top finishers in the 2015 Marathon! Cash prizes are awarded as below for both men and women.

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 $250 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 $400 for the 2nd Overall win.

First place = $700 | Second place = $400 | Third place = $300
