SeaWheeze Half Marathon
Lululemon bills their Seawheeze half marathon as “more than just a run, it's an out of this world weekend where you’ll get your yoga on, crush your running goals, and celebrate it all with family and friends at the best outdoor concert of the summer.”
Seawheeze participants can certainly expect a great weekend and classic BC summer half marathon running experience during the annual event that usually takes place in August.The event is a massive race and has recently been attracting fields of around 10,000 runners. It has fast become a destination half marathon, and typically brings in a large number of out of town runners.
This event typically starts in waves, with runners positioned by their estimated finishing time. The Seawheeze also works hard to create an entire weekend of activities for runners. Expect large scale yoga events (It is put on by Lululemon after all!) and some killer afterparties.
The Seawheeze half marathon follows a route that begins in downtown Vancouver, and takes runners on a single loop course along the False Creek seawall, into Kitsilano, then around Stanley Park, and back into downtown for a finish where the race started. The course is fairly flat with no major climbs or downhill sections.
