Gary Pohl – Spirit of the Equinox 2013

Probably the most surprised person at the Equinox Awards this year was the winner, Gary Pohl. But that’s how Gary is, very humble and unassuming.

Without any fanfare he takes on jobs that most people would shy away from. Gary has been a reliable face on the Running Club North Board of Directors for many years. He completed the Equinox Marathon this year marking his 23rd finish. Two of his more visible projects are being one of the co-race directors of the Gold Discovery Run and the editor of the Running Club North race calendar. Both are extremely time consuming and he’s overseen for as long as most of us can remember. As Gary acknowledged in his acceptance, he is committed to running, Running Club North, and the Fairbanks running community.
