You've heard of getting married in Vegas, but did you know that there is a unique opportunity for athletic couples wishing to get hitched or renew their vows? These couples are going to be there, celebrating their marriage in this unique way.
This weekend, runners from all over the world will converge on Las Vegas to participate in the Rock ‘n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon and Half Marathon. The iconic Las Vegas Boulevard will turn into the running ground for over 32,000 participants who are there to enjoy a unique marathon, which unlike most, takes place at night.
For lovebirds, there is a very exciting element — runners can also participate in the Run Thru Wedding Ceremony, where they can get hitched or renew their vows at the Official Rock ‘n' Roll Run Thru Wedding Start Line Ceremony. In front of all participants, runners can take part in a quick three-minute ceremony that they will never forget. Even better, there is no additional charge to participate aside from the entrance fee.
A couple from Florida is planning to renew their vows during this ceremony. They were married 30 years ago when they were both 20 years old, and amazingly, this couple has known one another since the second grade. This beautiful story includes a love of running, and interestingly, they happen to share the exact same marathon and half marathon running time, even though they did not run those races together.
This couple met by email during work-related business — because of their jobs, they had to contact one another to clear up issues with an experimental dance performance. Love intervened, and they wound up as a couple. They say that running is extremely important to their relationship. “We run together three times a week and when we are separated, we actually run at the same time, in different cities,” they said.
A young couple, both serving in the Army and both 27 years old, is renewing their vows this weekend. Having met in junior high, they began dating in high school. They were married three years ago and are looking forward to this weekend's festivities.
Traveling all the way from the European country of France, a couple is set to get married just a week before the race and will renew their vows at the ceremony. How did they meet, you ask? During a marathon run of course!
Love takes many forms, and there are many ways to get married and renew one's vows. It's awesome that there is a marriage and vow renewal ceremony specifically for runners who share the love and passion for physical fitness, and the memories of a night run on Las Vegas Boulevard — coupled with a ceremony — will be priceless.
