Lululemon held a big bash at their Store Support Centre in Kitsilano on Wednesday, smartly called “PreWheeze,” to celebrate the upcoming SeaWheeze Half Marathon and Sunset Festival on Aug. 23.
Guests were treated to beers by Stanley Park Brewing, who will be in attendance at SeaWheeze, a fashion preview of a special line of running clothing, and tunes by festival headliners Capital Cities and The Colourists.
In its third year, the run is held in and around Stanley Park, with the subsequent festivities at Brockton Fields.
“We decided to turn it from a half marathon to a whole weekend experience,” says event manager Lauren Soltau.
“Music has always been involved, a party has always been involved, and yoga, naturally, has always been involved.”
Registration for the race is sold out, but people can still purchase tickets for the fun stuff afterwards. Besides a concert and sunset yoga practice, there will also be a licensed patio and gourmet catering. For more information, visit www.seawheeze.com.
