2018 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.
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). Cash prizes are calculated by "Gun Time".
The top 3 winners in both the Overall and Masters categories 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.
First place = $400 | Second place = $300 | Third place = $200
