With circumstances continuing to change with unprecedented speed around the world concerning the novel coronavirus COVID-19, we want to update you on our decision to move the Wineglass 8K from Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 23, 2020, to Saturday, August 1, 2020. The annual event coincides with Corning Gaffer District's decision to move GlassFest weekend to July 30 – August 2, 2020.
The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, spectators, and residents is our top priority. With participants currently representing 13 states, three countries, and hundreds of runners signed up for one of our Challenges Wineglass Weekend we are offering two options that allow participants to choose the option that is best for them.
Option 1 - Currently registered participants will be automatically registered for the new date.
Option 2 – We will be offering participants the opportunity to participate in the Wineglass 8K as a virtual race. Details will follow.
In addition, we have decided to suspend the price increase scheduled for April 1, 2020, for all Wineglass Race Series events. This includes the Guthrie Wineglass Marathon, Wegmans Wineglass Half Marathon, Wineglass Riesling Marathon Challenge, and Wineglass Pinot Half Marathon Challenge. Currently, we anticipate all events will occur as scheduled.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this difficult time. We will continue to update you as we work through the details and please visit our website for more information.
On behalf of the Wineglass Race Series, we hope that you and your families remain safe during this unprecedented and challenging time.
