Held on Sunday, April 26, the race starts at 9 a.m. from Fletchers Cove and charts a 5K course. 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 the handing out of goodie bags stocked with a race T-shirt and coupons from local wedding vendors.
Brides Run DC 5K
A runaway bride puts a damper on any wedding—but the brides-to-be in the Brides Run DC 5K 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.
