BALTIMORE — Thirty-two-year-old David Berdan of Owings Mills finished first in the Baltimore Marathon.
The science teacher and cross country coach finished Saturday’s race through Baltimore in just over two and a half hours, marking his second win in three years. Berdan also finished first in 2013, but dropped out of the race at mile 13 last year due to a setback from a stress fracture in his hip.
More than 24,000 runners participated in Baltimore Running Festival, representing all 50 states and 29 countries, according to WBAL-TV. The festival included a half-marathon, a 5k race and a Kids Fun Run.
Caitlin Gaughan won the women’s race with a time of just over two hours and 58 minutes.
