A dozen Harvard Medical School students placed 23rd overall out of 285 running clubs in the seventh annual Reach the Beach Relay this past weekend (Sept. 16-17) in New Hampshire. The 24-hour, 200-mile relay kicked off in Crawford Notch in the heart of the White Mountains and ended on the shore at Hampton Beach State Park. Team HMS, who used the event to raise money for the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program, finished the course in 26:11:48, less than six minutes behind the first-place Bucknell Alumni Distance Team.
