Over the last year and a bit we’ve done a lot of things virtually—from the standard work meetings to the more unusual cooking classes, trivia nights and birthday parties. And for anyone who may have taken up running every time a lockdown hits, we’ve got another virtual activity to add: marathon running.
Ok, you will have to actually do the running in lululemon’s SeaWheeze Virtual Half Marathon and 10K this September, there’s no escaping that. The difference is, you’ll be running it alone, tracking your progress and your results via Strava and uploading them to a virtual leaderboard.
lululemon’s SeaWheeze Half Marathon usually takes place in Vancouver each year, but of course, with large crowd gatherings still off the cards, the event couldn’t go ahead for the second time running. The silver lining though, is that with the marathon going virtual once again, anyone across the world can enter, joining a huge global community of runners in lacing up and hitting the tarmac.
Online registration for the race is open now, and you’ll even get a training plan to help you get ready for the 10K or the Half Marathon once you enter, plus a medal for your efforts. You can run outdoors or on a treadmill, the only requirement is that you record your final run in a single effort between September 18 to 26. So it’s time to start training—and what better excuse to buy yourself a brand new running outfit at lululemon?
If some new training gear is essential (we get it), you should check out lululemon's new limited edition Seawheeze collection, featuring everything you could need to hit that PB. Each piece is vibrant and colourful—inspired by the transformative experience running produces. We want one of everything. You can check out the full range here, and sign up for the run here.
