Register for Bar Association 5K May 15

Registration is now available for the 32nd Annual Philadelphia Bar Association 5K Run/Walk which will be held Sunday, May 15 on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive adjacent to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

While the 5KRun/Walk offers friendly individual competition for runners in 16 age categories for both male and female competitors in both Bar Association and non-Bar Association categories, the competition also includes the Caesar, Rivise, Bernstein, Cohen & Pokotilow Legal Team Competition for participating law firms. This legal team competition is fun for all participants because of its unique scoring system that allows teams with diverse age and gender classifications to be competitive with each another. A team's score is based on the individual rankings of the team members who do best in their individual age and gender classifications based on the finishing times of only the legal team competitors. A legal team includes between three and five members who must be bona fide full-time or part-time employees of the firm, so paralegals, law clerks and legal secretaries are encouraged to join attorneys on legal teams. The highly sought after trophy bowls are awarded to the top three legal teams. The entry fee for each legal team is a $400 contribution to Child Advocates and all team competitors also receive an exclusive team competitor T-shirt for having completed the event.
