review of 2016 Wineglass Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

The town, race, hotels, workers are all top notch!. Beautiful view during the run. Plenty of aid stations during the run. I liked staying at the finish. We stayed at the Staybridge Suites easy walk to buses and back to hotel. Next door to the expo. Expo was a little small but nice.

Race Tips

Buses ran nonstop. Never had to wait. They had a nice warming tent to wait in. Race Joy is a must, but make sure you have a strong battery life. It worked great with my phone, but died on my girlfriends phone. I lost her at 20 miles..

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Arrive early to enjoy the expo and a little walk through town. No need to worry about where to eat. WE loved all the restaurants in town.

The course is very flat, and it's very well organized. Pre-race, during race, and post race all have the best volunteers I've seen by far.

Race Tips

Running with a pacer is easier because of it's flat terrain
