The SeaWheeze Half Marathon is 21.1km (13.1 miles) of breathtaking scenery, salty ocean air, high fives, and Vancouver vibes happening this weekend with pre-run festivities and post-run concert.
SeaWheeze Half Marathon and Sunset Festival
It all starts with the PreWheeze Party on Friday, August 16th from 7:00am to 8:00pm at the Vancouver Convention Centre. That’s where participants can pick up their run packages, do some yoga, enjoy live music, do some meditation, and catch a film screening.
The SeaWheeze Half Marathon is Saturday, August 17th from Hastings and Burrard, starting at 7:00am. The run is followed by a brunch and then the SeaWheeze Sunset Festival over at Brockton Oval in Stanley Park (with shuttles running 3:30pm to 11:00pm). The Festival will have food and drinks, yoga, and performances by Big Wild and Kaskade.
Registration for the half marathon is now closed but you can still get tickets to the Sunset Festival.
