Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2015 Set Up

Today was the set up day for the 2015 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon!

I volunteered with the set up group. We first picked up any trash so that they could lay down the turf. There wasn’t much so it didn’t take us long.

We had a great group of volunteers working! Most were runners who will be running this Saturday! Almost all were from out of town: Michigan, Chicago, San Francisco, Salmon Arm. There were only two of us from Vancouver. They didn’t have our shirts unpacked yet.

Here’s one of the assembly groups. I did this last year and wasn’t good at it!

These are just of a few of the 10,016s of bags that we assembled for the runners! I loved this bag a lot more than last year’s! And there are three different water bottle sayings so I hope that I get the one that I like best!

We got to preview the store. It looked just as big as last year. We were warned not to take any photos of any of the limited edition items and put them on social media before the grand unveiling tomorrow at 7 AM. I’m really happy that the runners will get to shop at 7 AM to 9:30 AM before the general public is let in. (Package pick up can wait! lol) Last year, people started to line up at 3AM and I expect people will do the same this year. I will be lining up earlier because I really don’t want to miss out on the things I’ve picked out!

I did see a few things that I will buy, I especially loved one bag, some shorts and some tops and bras! I know that the others who got to see the store were also impressed and will go early to shop! As usual, I’m sure that these limited edition items will sell out quickly!

We got to preview the store. It is 22,000 square feet this year! We were warned not to take any photos of any of the limited edition items and put them on social media before the grand unveiling tomorrow at 7 AM. Last year, people started to line up at 4 AM and I expect people will do the same this year.

I did see a few things that I will buy. I was happy to see that the clothing is fairly different from last year. I know that the others who got to see the store were also impressed and will go early to shop! As usual, I’m sure that these limited edition items will sell out quickly!

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.
