Consistently ranked as one of the best first-time half marathons, the Wegmans Wineglass Half continues to be a popular point-to-point course from Campbell, NY (the halfway point of the Full Marathon) to the finish line on Historic Market Street in Corning.  ***All Runners Must be at least 16 years old. 


The Wegmans Wineglass Half Marathon

In 2011, the first Wineglass Half Marathon registration opened to 1,000 runners. This year, runners will have the chance to break personal records on the popular course. A number of those runners will be participating in the Wineglass Pinot Half Marathon Challenge (complete the Wineglass 8K, StorFlex 5K and Wegmans Half Marathon). 

Runners will take to the roads on this point-to-point course from Campbell, NY (the halfway point of the Full Marathon) to the finish line on Historic Market Street in Corning. The picturesque course winding through several small towns and along scenic country roads is fast and flat with an overall net elevation drop of 40 feet.

Board the VIP Bus Sunday morning at Wegmans in Corning, away from the hustle-and-bustle of the other runners catching their buses to the start lines. This small coach-style bus stocked with pre-race goodies will deliver you to the full marathon start line. The VIP Bus will remain near the start line for you to wait in comfort (and warmth) before you need to toe the start line. Seats are limited to 25 runners. The VIP option is $300 from 12/1/2023 - 6/14/2024 and $330 from 6/15/2023 until sold out, with half of the fee going towards your entry and the other half supporting the Wineglass Scholarship Fund.

***Please Note that this Bus Leaves from Wegmans In Corning!  This is the only option for getting on the VIP Bus!
