2021 Wineglass Race Series

October 1 - 3, 2021 • Corning, NY


Sunday October 3, 2021. Start Time: 08:15am

The 40th Annual Guthrie Wineglass Marathon, one of the more popular and fastest-growing marathons in the Northeast United States will take place in the Finger Lakes Region on Sunday, October 3, 2021. Each year, more and more runners travel from all over the US and Canada, and from around the world to "America’s Crystal City”.

The 2020 Wineglass Race Series looked different from any we could have imagined.  For 2021, the marathon is taking a hybrid approach, offering both an in-person option and a virtual option for all Wineglass Race Series events.  The hybrid approach allows us to remain flexible.

 As we work towards a new normal, we will continue to follow the guidance of local, city, state and public health officials.  We are committed to creating a positive and safe race experience for our runners.

The course is fast. Very fast. Personal records tend to fall here. Beyond the chance for a PR, the speed also makes Wineglass one of the top spots to qualify for the Boston Marathon.  And the early autumn scenery is stunning.  These are just a few of the reasons runners love the Wineglass. Part of the reason why Wineglass has been named one of the top 10 Destination Races in the world and why runners voted it the Best Marathon in New York State in 2018 (RaceRave). 

Wineglass is about more than the miles. For the folks who run the event, for the people who live here, for the thousands of volunteers, it’s not about the race as much as it is about the runners and the experiences they have. The experiences you have! It’s about having something special we can’t wait to share with the world.

There are other perks, too, like great food, exceptional wine and craft beverages, incredible art and culture, and the peacefulness and calm that can only be found in a small town.

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.


Saturday October 2, 2021. Start Time: 08:00am

As part of Wineglass Weekend, the Corelle 5K is a great warm up for those participating in the full or half marathons. The 5K is a family friendly event that gives runners of all ages and skill levels the chance to participate.
