Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Exclusive Runner Shop Sale Sneakius Peekius 2015

This is a copy of an email that I received from Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon. For the first time, runners will be able to get first crack at the exclusive Special Edition Seawheeze gear!

Each runner received a special email that will allow us early access to the Seawheeze store. This has been a sore point with runners from previous Seawheeze races because they would have to line up with the general public. This line was like Black Friday. People would start to line up the previous night. A lot of them would grab a lot and then promptly put it on eBay to sell.

After so many complaints, Lululemon Seawheeze finally listened and will now allow the runners into the store first from 7:00 AM to 9:30 AM. Then, the general public will be allowed in at 10:00 AM.

I am all excited about running this race for the first time! I’ve run many races, including marathons and half marathons, but this is the first Seawheeze for me! I’ve always volunteered for the race but I’m finally running it this year.

I’m trying to decide what to buy…and what time I should start lining up in the special runner’s line!

Take a look at this preview. What would you buy??

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Retail Store Set Up Preview 2013

Today is the day before the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Retail Store opens!

It takes a lot of planning, organization and work to set up the store. This area at the convention center is huge! And by tomorrow, the room will encompass the package pick up, chip checker and retail store, among other things. Will this be the largest Lululemon pop up store ever?

Here are a few photos from the set up today.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.
