2014 Wineglass Marathon Runners in Corning, NY and the Finger Lakes by Chris WaltersWineglass RunnersRunners blur towards the finish at the 2014 Wineglass Marathon in Corning, NY

Corning, NY played host to the 2014 Wineglass Marathon today, a marathon the Active Times recently ranked #10 for the world's best marathons.  It started out a crisp and cold Fall day.  Half-Marathon and Marathon runners of all expertise started in the towns of the Finger Lakes and finished on historic Market Street in Corning's Gaffer District.  The winds throughout the previous days had taken many of the yellowed leaves from their tree top homes, but a few remained, to float down through the air in a coronation ceremony for the arriving runners.

With many of the runners donning the preferred neon and bright color uniform of the street running, the day was perfectly set for long exposure photography.  Setting up my tripod, the scene before unfolded in a colorful wave of endless bodies streaming through the street.  Using a 10 Stop Neutral Density Filter, I was able to achieve a nice amount of motion blur while keeping the colors in tone with the Fall day.  Other photos from that day can be seen in my 2014 Wineglass Marathon gallery.  For more running photography, check out the great work of Zach Hetrick and for more local, marathon photography, check out the work of A.D.
