It’s time for nominations for the Lou Gregory Spirit Award to be submitted to President Eric Miller (PensacolaRunnersAssociation@gmail.com). The Lou Gregory Award is named after the legendary Pensacola State College Cross Country and Track Coach who was a national running figure for decades. The award is presented to a person (or persons) who has demonstrated great leadership and enthusiasm in promoting running in Northwest Florida, has contributed significantly to the Pensacola Runners Association mission and also to the area running community. The award is PRA’s highest honor and was awarded to Jehan Clark, former President and many-time Race Director of PRA events, in 2015.
