RACE TO FUND WEDDING
250 couples join run to win free package
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
