39th Guthrie Wineglass Marathon - October 4, 2020
Update June 25, 2020
The 2020 Wineglass Weekend transitions to a virtual event due to coronavirus-related healthy and safety concerns.
These last few months have brought many changes to our lives and our communities. We understand you have been training extremely hard and recently began your training for Wineglass with the hopes of finally getting to toe the start line. We want to honor those efforts and commitment the best we can.
We want nothing more than to welcome you to Corning and the beautiful Finger Lakes region, assist you as you try to find the perfect winery, or help you navigate the many excellent restaurants and sights we're known for. We always look forward to greeting you in the early morning hours as you load the bus to the start line, full of anticipation, hope, and excitement for what the day holds. Then there is the finish line...full of smiles, tears, and relief because you have made it. Whatever your goals or your journey is leading up to race day, we love being there with you and celebrating your success as you accomplished something few do.
We are announcing that Wineglass Weekend 2020 will transition to a virtual event. The 39th Guthrie Wineglass Marathon, 10th Wegmans Half Marathon, and Corelle 5K will take place virtually from October 1-31, 2020. Participants can run or walk their race at their own pace anytime during October from wherever you are, even inside on a treadmill. Registration is currently open and will end on October 15, 2020 at 11:59 pm. New participants can register here.
Registered participants have three options:
1. Participate in the virtual event. All participants will be automatically moved to the virtual event (that you are currently registered for). All participants will receive our ever-popular runner schwag as well as 25% off your entry in 2021. Runner schwag includes: Full/Half Marathon - Gender & race-specific quarter-zip tech shirt, 2020 handmade glass medal, insulated wine glass, and runner bag, 5K - long sleeve t-shirt, 5K medal, and runner bag, and Challenge - runner schwag that corresponds with your event (either full or half), 5K schwag, and commemorative belt buckle.
2. Donate your registration fee. If you wish to support us as we support our community, you may donate your registration fee (minus a small processing fee), and in appreciation, you will receive 25% off your entry in 2021. Please email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 16, 2020, at noon.
3. Request a Refund. We understand that these are challenging times. If participating virtually doesn't interest you and if converting your registration fee to a donation is not possible, please email us directly at email@example.com by July 16, 2020, at noon. You will receive an email confirmation of your request. You will receive a refund of your registration fee only via the payment method used at registration.
While our communities and the world face new challenges daily, we understand that there is a huge responsibility with our commitment to the health and well-being of our participants, volunteers, partners, spectators, sponsors, and our community. We also realize that as runners, you are looking for camaraderie, motivation, and the support our community provides. We will miss the in-person moments with you this year, but we will be with you every step of the way along your 2020 virtual adventure!
Wishing you all the best,
Sheila W. Sutton, Race Director
