For a third consecutive year, the Alfred University Athletic Training Club was invited to assist local physicians at the Wineglass Marathon, held on Oct. 2 in Steuben County. Students and faculty, worked hand-in-hand with the medical director of the marathon to provide medical support to runners during the race.
The Wineglass Marathon this year attracted 6,500 runners competing in 5K and half marathons, and the full marathon between the Village of Bath and the City of Corning. The large field meant that AU’s Athletic Training Club members were busy assisting runners suffering from cramping, musculoskeletal injuries, and general fatigue all throughout the course, especially at the medical tent at the finish fine.
