The Spirit of the Equinox Award Background and History

E-mail Print PDF

The Spirit of the Equinox Award was established in 1986 in memory of George Bloom.

Georgie ran the Equinox Marathon 18 consecutive years and felt that it was the ultimate running event.  The award is to exemplify what Georgie stood for in the running community -- someone who was always willing to lend a hand, organize a race, offer an encouraging word, and was quick with a smile and a wave.

E-mail Print PDF

The winner of the Spirit of the Equinox Award for 2014 is Bob Vitale. Following is the presentation by Tracey Martinson.

This year's recipient has been in Fairbanks for a long, long, long time.  Forty years, in fact!  This person started running about 30 years ago, on a cold and wintery day when the temperature hovered at 30-below zero.  [Who takes up running in the middle of a Fairbanks winter?!]
