Bronze Age for Ragnar
Hail to 12 Maryland language scientists, plus their crew, who won bronze in their division of the Ragnar Relay, out of 97 teams, running 207 miles in 29 hours, 2 minutes and 49 seconds. The team was 14th out of 315 overall.
The relay stretched over an epic route from Cumberland, in the western tip of Maryland, "east through thick forest trails and scenic paths [...] through the quiet streets of many charming historic Civil War-Era towns," ending ultimately in D.C. at Yards Park near the Navy Yards on the banks of the Anacostia.
An inspiring feat by runners Adam Fishbein, Alison Shell, Andrea Zukowski, Anouk Dieuleveut, Colin Phillips, Eric Pelzl, Laurel Perkins and fiancé Nathan Letourneau, Nick Huang, Nina Hsu, Phoebe Gaston, Shevaun Lewis, and Tom Conners. Congratulations also to this year's tireless support crew, Lara Ehrenhofer and Tara Mease
