The Spirit of the Equinox Award Background and History

E-mail Print PDF
The award recipients are selected by a committee consisting of the members of the local running community and one person from Georgie's immediate family.  The recipients of this award are not required to have run the Equinox Marathon.  In fact, they need not even be runners.  The committee bases their selection of the recipient on these criteria:

  • Contribution to the running community
  • How inspirational the recipient is to others
  • Overall attitude and enthusiasm toward others
