FAQ Section Added to Website
We have added a new section to the Equinox website -- a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) section. This section includes many small articles that answer questions that many people (especially first-time participants) might have. To see the FAQs, scroll over the "Race Info" menu item in the header, then click on "Race Info FAQs" in the drop-down menu.
Prize Money for Record Breaking Performances
The prize money schedule for record-breaking performances has been revised. Any man breaking Stan Justice' record or woman breaking Susan Faulkner's record will earn $500 in prize money. Only one person of each sex can win the prize (in the case where more than one person breaks the record). A relay team that breaks the record set last year will win $300, $100 per team member.
Past Champions to Receive Free Entry for Life
At its most recent meeting, the Equinox Marathon Advisory Committee voted unanimously to adopt a policy whereby past Equinox Marathon champions would receive free entry to the Marathon in perpetuity.
