For The Love Of Mary

Kirk Horton, Simon Perkins | 2018 | 6 min.

2019 Official Selection

First-time 97-year-old runner, George Etzweiler, completed the race up the northeast’s tallest peak, Mount Washington, when he was 69 years old. Despite having a pacemaker, the State College, Pennsylvania resident competes in the grueling 7.6-mile race up nearly 4,700 feet of paved road, breaking his own record each year for the oldest finisher. In addition to his ancient, lucky, green running shorts, Etzweiler carries something else special with him: The memory of his late wife of 68 years, Mary.
