This was Runcation at its best!
First time I heard about this race I was told it’s a hard one to get into as it sells out in mere minutes. I was lucky to get in this year. Months after registering, lulu sent the official Seawheeze shorts in the mail. This is a pretty cool thing as I am used to receiving race shirts not shorts and usually on race day not months ahead.

-Seawheeze Showcase/Expo/Bib Pick up
I got a lulu mesh duffle bag with water bottle and snacks inside. The showcase store is ridiculous! Hard core lulu fans even camp out days/night before to get exclusive and limited merch.
Expo is one of the best I’ve been to. There’s lots of pampering involved to get runners excited and ready for race day. There’s free stations for hair braiding, hair cut for men, temporary air brush tattoos, mani (nail polish only in lulu colors), photo/video booths, and sunset yoga.

-Race course
Pretty much mostly flat from Downtown Vancouver to Stanley Park. Views are pretty nice especially by the water. Course was marked clearly in kilometers. Pacers called pace beavers were present for those going for time. At the finish you are greeted with a nice clean cold towel, water, and a huge medal. Free catered boxed breakfast were also provided. We also got a free lululemon baseball cap/hat and some free essential oils in a travel pouch from Saje.
Other post race treats are foam roller stretching area, free massage, and free alignment from chiropractors at the finish expo area.

-Sunset Festival Party
Another perk and a perfect way to end race day is a yoga session and concert at Stanley park . Free shuttles are provided to and from this event from downtown.

Overall this is one race every runner should check off on their running bucket list. It really is a run yoga party. I’m really happy, satisfied, and very impressed with how Lululemon organized this event and would love to go again.
