PHILADELPHIA, PA--Mark Burgmann, Liz Coda, Megan Feehan, Cozen O’Connor and the ACC Greater Philadelphia team are the big winners at the 39th Annual Philadelphia Bar Association 5K Charity Run held on Sunday, May 20, 2018 at Memorial Hall.

Burgmann, an Assistant District Attorney at the Philadelphia office, finished 1st overall in a time of 16:44.21. He was also the winner of the Bar Association Competition. Liz Coda who ran with Students’ Run Philly Style was the first female overall and Megan Feehan of Cozen O’Connor was the first female member of the Bar Association. In the team competitions, both Cozen and ACC had perfect scores to win the Legal and Corporate team competitions respectively.

The Race, which benefits the Support Center for Child Advocates, was blessed by a break in the rain and the runners promptly galloped through a muggy 70° start. Both Burgmann and Coda went right to the front within a quarter of a mile of the start and continued on to victory as overall male and female champions. Megan Feehan, similarly went into the lead among females in the Bar Association Competition and 2nd overall amongst females and continued to lead Bar members throughout the race. Burgmann finished in a time of 16:44, Coda in a time of 20:41, and Feehan in a time of 20:50. Other Bar Association members did extremely well in the Open Competition. Eileen Somers finished 2nd only to Megan Feehan among women 30-34; Francis O’Neill finished 1st among males 35-39 in the Open Competition; Christina Riggs finished 1st among females 35-39; Kevin Dunleavy finished 1st among males 40-44; Kenneth Kapner finished 1st among males 55-59; Judge Abbe Fletman finished in an excellent time of 34:27 for 1st in her Bar Association age group.
