Fifty soon-to-be groom and bride couples take part in race in Hanoi
This competition is for soon-to-be grooms and brides to show off their love and care for each other.

Some 50 couples gathered in Hanoi on Sunday to take part in a race dedicated to soon-to-be grooms and brides.

The competition, part of a wedding exhibition and tourism program scheduled to take place in the capital from August 21 to 23, saw the participation of 50 couples from many cities nationwide.

Nguyen Hoang Hai and Luong Hai Chau, the winning couple, said that they participated in the event to celebrate their upcoming wedding and were hoping to create happy, meaningful memories.

Contestants had to compete with other couples in different challenges, some of which required them to collaborate harmoniously in order to win.
