The Runaway Bride 5K FUN RUN & 2 Mile Walk for A Beautiful Me

Saturday August 1st, 2020

Port Huron, MI

Official Website



WHO:  All runners and walkers who want to have a great time!  You don't have to be a bride or someone who is getting married.  Men and anyone interested in participating are welcome!  Ideally, runners will dress-up as brides, grooms, bridesmaids, groomsmen, priests, churches, cakes, etc.  Please use your imagination and have a great time coming up with your own unique wedding-inspired attire to wear!  

For those looking for a good place to get a dress, the A Beautiful Me Closet in downtown Port Huron will have used dresses that you can choose from for a small donation beginning in January 2019!

WHAT: A timed 5K fun run and a 2 mile fun walk.  T-shirts and socks (for those Runaway Brides' cold feet!) for those who register by the deadline.  Prizes awarded for best costumes.  A "wedding reception" will follow the conclusion of the race with music, food, and libations!

WHERE:  This event will start and finish on the Thomas Edison Parkway, a boardwalk along the beautiful St. Clair River.  Runners will be treated to a view of the Blue Water Bridges, as well as the stunning blue water for which this area is famous.

WHEN: Join us Saturday, August 3rd, 2019,  at 8:00 AM for the Inaugural Runaway Bride 5K and 2 Mile Walk.  Both the run and walk begin at 8:00 AM.  Pre-register here on Runsignup.com, or register in-person the day of the race beginning at 6:30 AM.

WHY: To have a fabulous time making memories whether you're running alone or with family and friends, and to help benefit A Beautiful Me (more on the non-profit below).

HOW: Complete the registration on this site!  The registration fee for both the run and the walk start at $25 for early bird registration and increases to $30 and then to $40 the closer that we get to the run/walk.  On the day of the race, the registration fee for last minute entries is $40, and you are not guaranteed a shirt or socks.   

100% of ALL proceeds go to A Beautiful Me, building self-worth in 3rd-12th grade girls!
