FAQs

Do I have to be a bride to run this 5K?

Of course not! Anyone and everyone is invited to join in on the fun. Who doesn’t like a wedding themed 5k?

When will this 5k take place?

We will typically be holding one in your area every Spring and Fall. Our first run will be held June 3rd, 2016 in Utah County, hopefully just in time to get in shape for that dress or tux!

What can I expect from this run?

The best 5k around! Everyone wants to be ready for your next nuptial event, so what better way than getting in shape and finding discounts for the rest of your big day? We have great sponsors that want to help make your day as smooth and perfect as you could possibly imagine. Your participation also includes a great grab bag with wonderful prizes and discount vouchers as well as a raffle drawing for some great grand prizes provided by our sponsors.

Do I need to be an experienced runner?

Hahaha… no. This is a FUN run. If you are a great runner, you are certainly welcome, but the trail is very easy and anyone can do it. If this is motivation for you to start running, more power to you! Use this as motivation to fit into that dress! For anyone just wanting to have fun, you can walk, skate, hop or do anything you like to cross that finish line. If you are feeling self conscious and would like to do this on your own time, but still complete the race, join us via our Virtual Run! 

Is the Runaway Bride 5k a non-profit organization?

Nope! Runaway Bride 5k is neither a charity or non-profit organization. Runaway Bride 5k is product of 1385 Events; a for-profit event group.

Can someone else pick up my Grab Bag for me?

Yup! As long as you send them with a printed or electronic copy of your confirmation email with the confirmation code on it!

Is the Runaway Bride 5k Timed?

Nope. Since this is a fun run, we want to have fun! You can go as fast or slow as you like. If you would like to check your time, please be prepared to use self-timers.

Is this run refundable?

If an event is held as advertised, we cannot issue refunds. The logistics of setting up and planning the event make it impossible. Just make sure you are good to go before signing up. If for some reason you can’t make it to race day, at least come to the registration table, pick up your gear, and say hi to us!

Can Spectators come to the Bridal Party event at the finish?

Of course! No one should party alone, plus come check out all the vendors and food trucks that are waiting at the finish line! Yum….

Can children participate?

If they can cover (running, jogging, walking, or strolling) the three miles of Runaway Bride 5k course, they can absolutely participate! We do not offer t-shirts or the swag bag for the kiddos, but they are welcome to run for free. All t-shirts are adult sizing.

Do I have to dress like a bride while i run?

Not at all. We actually have specific packages for brides and grooms, but you don't have to dress up. There will be costume contests, but you can wear whatever you like so long as you wear something 😛
