Getting Married on the Run

Well, we’ve seen people get married all over the place – on mountain tops, scuba diving, while bungie jumping, you name it. Well, just when you thought there was no unique marrying situation for runners, you may get married in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Maration. Please see the below press release.

The 2008 Las Vegas Marathon Hosts

A Run-Through Wedding Ceremony


Las Vegas – The Las Vegas Marathon will host a run-through wedding ceremony on the race course at A Special Memory Wedding Chapel (800 S. 4th St.) on Sunday, Dec. 7, 2008 at 7:15 a.m.


The Las Vegas Marathon’s run-through wedding ceremony offers couples the opportunity to take the plunge while running in the 2008 race.  At the start of the 2008 marathon, the “Running Reverend” Jaime Firzlaff will lead participating couples from the starting line of the race to the chapel.  Once all the couples arrive, Firzlaff will conduct the ceremony before they continue along the race as newlyweds.


All couples registered for The 2008 Las Vegas Marathon may participate in the run-through wedding ceremony free of charge.  For more information or to sign up for the ceremony, please e-mail Marti at


The Las Vegas Marathon will take place on Sunday, Dec. 7, 2008 at 6 a.m. at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.  Fireworks start the race as runners run down the legendary Las Vegas Strip. Contrary to previous years, The 2008 Las Vegas Marathon is limiting the number of participants.  Once 20,000 runners are signed up for the full and half marathon combined, registration will be closed.
