Russian runaway brides compete for spa day

Russian Runaway brides

NARVA, Estonia – Married and single women from Estonia and parts of Russia put on wedding gowns to take part in the third annual brides race.

After a parade of contestants, the women raced on a 50 meter grass track.

The race organizer said the women were racing to get away from the humdrum of their daily routines.

They ran on the grounds of the Narva castle, a 13th century fort.

One contestant said running in the race brought back nice memories of her wedding.

This year’s winner received a weekend at an Estonian spa for free.
