The Lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon is happening this weekend - August 11, 2012. Approximately, 7500 entries have been received at $128 a pop (not a cheap event). If you were still thinking of participating as a runner, you are too late as the event is sold out. However, volunteer opportunities are still available for those that just want to be part of the fun.
In great Lulu fashion, this event will prove to be fun for everyone. On Friday, before the race you can attend the run expo (Vancouver Convention Center). On Saturday after the race, there is a concert scheduled and a sunset yoga class at Kitsilano Beach.
If you are planning on watching the race and cheering on the runners (crazy people! lol) check out the SeaWheeze page for the detailed route info.
For those of you coming into town for the marathon, Vancouver is a stunning city with plenty of things to see and do. You will not be disappointed!
