Spirit of the Tour



The 'Spirit of the Tour' trophy commemorates Peter Doig's role in the development of the original Alpine Chapter "Le Tour de North East" in 2010

In late 2015 the Alpine Alfisti Association assumed responsibility for organising and hosting these popular and well attended annual tours and continues the tradition of the award established by the Alpine Chapter


The recipients of the award are selected by a panel, comprising the Tour organisers and the previous award recipient. The trophy is awarded to the crew that is deemed to have provided a significant contribution to the general enjoyment of the Tour


The trophy is inscribed with the name(s) of the 'Spirit of the Tour' crew
