The World’s First “Mindful Triathlon” Comes to Seattle!
On May 22nd (Next Sunday!), Wanderlust 108 arrives in Seattle! So you may be wondering, what exactly is a “Mindful Triathlon?” Let me put it this way – do you love to run? Then this is for you. Do you love yoga? Yep, it’s for you. Do you love hanging with your girlfriend’s? Uh, huh…this is your jam. Pretty much, if you like to have a good time and can appreciate a little sparkly sweat, then Wanderlust 108 is your new best friend.
5K Run, Yoga and Meditation
Wanderlust’s reimagined triathlon consists of a five-kilometer run (or walk), a large-scale 90-minute yoga class and a guided meditation led by top teachers. Mindful triathletes will also enjoy musical performances from live bands and DJs, acroyoga, slacklining, hooping and other surprises throughout the day. Wanderlust.com
The day will kick off with a 5K fun run through Marymoor Park. In the early afternoon, high energy yoga classes from MC Yogi and Chelsey Korus will be followed by a relaxing meditation led by Dave Smith. The sweet beats of DJ Taz Rashid will bring the event home from the Main Stage.
Mini workshops are also available in acroyoga, slacklining, hooping, tribal color marking and more, which will give everyone a chance to be inspired and perhaps learn something new. The schedule will be paced to provide hang time between the 5K, yoga and meditation sessions.
Throughout the day, the Kula Marketplace will offer the finest from local craft vendors, including unique apparel, jewelry, and handcrafted items. It will also include a Kombucha Garden, cafe and juice bar, and a picnic lunch option to keep participants fueled throughout the day. Wanderlust.com
In 2015, Wanderlust 108 brought the mindful experience to thousands of participants in 17 cities. After this overwhelmingly positive response, Wanderlust 108 now expands to over 25 cities worldwide. For more information about the 108 series please visit: http://wanderlust.com/108s/
At each Wanderlust 108 event in the United States, attendees will be nourished by a number of Wanderlust partners, including:
adidas, will host a one-of-a kind, immersive onsite activation to engage in attendee-led experiences, enabling them to embed more sport into their day and create their best selves at all US-based events. Curated adidas apparel also will be sold at each event.
Ford Motor Company aims to deliver great products, a strong business and a better world. Ford is proud to be the Official Vehicle of Wanderlust. Event goers will have the opportunity to learn more about Ford’s full line-up of hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and all-electric cars, including the new 2017 Fusion Hybrid. Attendees can also join Ford for exclusive activities and take home some incredible giveaways at the Ford display.
Kashi believes that eating more plants can be a catalyst for a healthier life – which is why they’ll be sharing a variety of new plant-powered foods with festival attendees in 2016. By curating unique ingredients that simply #GoTogether, Kashi is able to create foods that offer both complete nutrition sources and taste amazing.
Additionally, Wanderlust has partnered with Charity Miles, a social good app that enables people to get moving for a purpose. Charity Milers walk, run or bike for cause of their choice, and members can choose from over 35 top charities. The Charity Miles tribe has raised over $1.2 million for charity, and counting.
