The gold medal in the Running of the Interns 2013 goes to this intrepid young man.

Notice the masterful technique here:

The fluttering tie truly makes this a special moment in Running of the Intern history. Great form.

Silver medal goes to this sprinting go-getter.

Look at that hustle!

Notice the veteran move of raising the decision over your head in judicial triumph.

The floodgates were released after that.

Some interns decided to be more casual with their breaking news than others.

Some sprinting interns could not cut it today.

But even to you light jogging interns, we salute you.

So here's to you brave participants in the Running of the Intern. Till next session.
