RACE TO FUND WED­DING

250 cou­ples join run to win free pack­age

New Straits Times - - World -

SOME 250 cou­ples in wed­ding dresses and suits raced through a Bangkok park here in the an­nual “Run­ning of the Brides” race to com­pete for US$28,000 (RM124,000) in wed­ding prizes.

Si­rada Thamwanna, 29, said she was ex­hausted after win­ning the 4km race with her soon-tobe groom Sit­tichai Pra­songsin, 27.

“I told the groom that I was go­ing to give up, I can’t do it any more,” Si­rada said on Satur­day, after cross­ing the fin­ish line in a white wed­ding dress and black run­ning shoes.

“He sup­ported me and said that we only had a lit­tle more to go,” she added.

The free wed­ding pack­age in­cludes a gown for the bride and suit for the groom, wed­ding bands, a hon­ey­moon on the Thai re­sort is­land of Phuket, as well as a trip to the Mal­dives. Reuters
