Weddings are full of odd traditions, such as throwing uncooked rice at the newlyweds and watching people kiss in public. Prepare for the weirdest event of your life with this Groupon.
- $20 for 5k registration for one in the Brides Run (up to a $40 value)
Held on Sunday, August 18, the race starts at 9 a.m. and charts a 5k course through Creve Coeur Park. Open to brides, grooms, and members of their party, the race is designed to relieve the stress of wedding planning, and help participants jumpstart a wedding fitness regimen. Prizes go to the best bride costume, the best wedding theme, and the biggest bridal party. The event culminates in a post-race party, and goodie bags stocked with a race t-shirt and coupons from local wedding vendors.
A runaway bride puts a damper on any wedding––but the brides-to-be in Brides Run aren't running away from their nuptials. It's more like they're running towards them; the race is designed to dissipate wedding-planning stress, and help brides work on their fitness regimens leading up to the big day. And despite it's name, it's not just for brides. The race, available in four different cities, is open to all wedding-party members, including grooms, bridesmaids, and the people who roll the rings down the aisle.
