Special Guest - Deena Kastor  


Wineglass organizers are excited to announce three-time Olympian, Deena Kastor as the special guest for Wineglass Weekend from September 30 – October 2, 2022. 
Deena is an Olympic Bronze medalist and the American record holder in the marathon (2:19.36).  Since beginning her professional career in 1997, Deena has held American records in every distance from the 5K to the marathon. She has represented the USA on 19 national teams. Deena also earned two silver medals in the World Cross Country Championships and has 24 national titles to her name. As a master runner (over 40 years old) she has broken five world records and seven American records including the marathon. 

In 2019,  Deena wrote a New York Times Bestseller and 2019 Memoir of the Year, Let Your Mind Run A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory.  “I am thrilled to be a part of this year’s Wineglass Weekend, said Kastor.  “There is nothing better than seeing a community come together to celebrate the sport of running, which has such a positive effect on all our lives. The sport of running, like no other, has a way of empowering individuals, uniting families, and engaging communities. The journey to race weekend is full of surprises and growing moments, and race day is a celebration of that journey, in which I look forward to taking part.”

Deena will be spending time talking to students and meeting runners throughout the weekend, said Sheila Sutton, Race Director.  “This is truly a unique opportunity for our community.”

Kastor will also be the featured speaker at the Pasta Dinner at the Radisson Hotel Corning on Saturday, October 1st at 5:30.  Tickets to that event are limited and go on sale June 15th.  All ticket sales will be handled online at https://www.wineglassmarathon.com/event-info.
