The Spirit of the Equinox Award Background and History
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.
