Countdown to Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2013

It is now officially the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2013 Week! The race itself is this Saturday, August 10, 2013 at 7 AM. I have been waiting all year since last year’s first race! This was such an awesome event and I’m sure it’ll be just as great this year!

Countdown to Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2013

Countdown to Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2013

This year, the race was just as popular with all 10, 014 runners spots being sold out quickly! Last year, this race attracted a lot of local and out-of-town runners.

Although I’m a runner, I prefer to volunteer. I had such a good time volunteering last year. Lululemon treated us very well.

One of the featured yoga classes taught by super yogi, Christie Baumgartner, is on world-famous Kitsilano beach, which is close to Lululemon headquarters and the first Lululemon store. This class is part of Kitsfest, which has tennis and beach volleyball on the beach the same weekend.

Runners also get access to seaside resort activities, the luon lounge and a post race brunch among other things. Last year that included massages!

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2013

There will also be special edition gear in a retail store. It was really popular last year and I saw long lines of people all day long!

Seawheeze2013a

Here’s the course map. The runners will be treated to a course with gorgeous Vancouver sea and mountains! Most Vancouver runners are familiar with this scenic course, running the sea wall.

In addition to the race and yoga, the event is capped off with the Saturday night sunset festival at beautiful Stanley Park! It starts with yoga with Ryan Leier and then a concert featuring, Xavier Rudd and Passenger!

SeaWheezeSunsetFestival

If you’re in Vancouver and would like to participate, there are still volunteer positions available! If you are registered as a runner, good luck and have a great time!

I’ll be blogging about the Seawheeze events and show the retail items all this week as I did last year.

Lululemon Seawheeze 2012 Attractions

Here are some of the attractions at the first annual Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon!

Here is the welcome sign outside the Vancouver Trade and Convention Center.

Here is the parcel pick up area. This is where I volunteered for the evening. Whenever I volunteer for marathons, I like this area because I get to meet the runners! I heard from another volunteer that only 30% of the runners are local (from the Vancouver area). The rest of the 7500 runners (70%) are from outside the area. From my experience, an overwhelming number are from Washington state, Seattle.

This is the long line up for the cash register. I couldn’t believe that it was so busy at 2PM! Later, when I started my shift, the line was never this busy.

Here is a disc jockey playing tunes with the magnificent view in the background. They say that there will be plenty of music in this race!

Just outside is the luon lounge. I had no idea what this was from the description in the website. It is a beautiful relaxation oasis with lts of areas to sit on comfy couches, hammocks, chairs. You can see the mountains in the background.

Here is one of the hammocks, made of Lululemon straps! They were always occupied!

Here’s a different angle of the luon lounge. See the Omega carved stool!

See the schedule for the two days that includes free yoga classes, goal setting, things to do in Vancouver, etc.

Here’s the sign that points us to gear check, store, massage, medical, etc.

What was this long line up for?

Free massages! There were rows and rows of massage tables. No wonder there was a line up!

You can see the orca in the background, and the colorful orange mascot!

They even had a lady on stilts!

Some more activities available.

Here was a large crate that looked like somebody’s living room!

Right beside it is a large white wall where people put their 2012 thoughts and goals! The man is wearing the gear check bag.

Here’s somebody writing down her goals!

Here’s some others doing the same.

Here’s a place for air brush tattoos! Lots of people were getting them on their legs for tomorrow’s race!

Here’s the bike check…

Here was the fruit freezee guy! I had the best tasting watermelon frozen pop I’ve ever had!

This is the race chip activator. The chip has Chip Wilson’s face on it. I guess being from Vancouver, I’m so used to knowing who he is. There was one runner I checked in who was asking, ‘And who’s this guy on the race chip?’.

This is the pick up point for the free Native flip flops. They were very popular!

Here is the unlit Olympic Cauldron for the flames from the 2010 Winter olympics. It is dusk.

Here’s another view.

Here’s the map of the course! The race starts at 7:37 AM!

I’ll be out there cheering the runners on!
