The World's First "Mindful Triathlon" Comes to DC

From our friends at Wanderlust...

Wanderlust, producers of the largest yoga lifestyle events in the world, brings the Wanderlust 108, the world’s first and only “mindful triathlon,” to Washington, DC on September 20, 2015. Wanderlust’s reimagined triathlon consists of a five-kilometer run, 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. It’s a fun-filled day in the park that will both challenge you and bring out your best.

The day will kick off with a 5K fun run through the Festival Grounds at RFK. In the early afternoon, high energy yoga classes from Ariele Foster and MC Yogi (with a Beastie Boys soundtrack) will be followed by a relaxing meditation led by Sage Rountree. The sweet beats of DJ Drez will bring the event home from the Main Stage.

Throughout the day, the Kula Marketplace will offer the finest from local craft vendors, including unique apparel, jewelry, and handcrafted items. Local food purveyors will provide an eclectic mix of healthy organic food options, including vegan and vegetarian fare.

Wanderlust 108 first launched in New York’s Prospect Park and Atlanta’s Piedmont Park in 2014, bringing the mindful triathlon experience to over 10,000 participants. After the overwhelmingly positive response, Wanderlust will expand the series to more than 15 cities in 2015, including events in the U.S. and additional events in Canada, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand.

At each Wanderlust 108 event, attendees will be nourished by a number of Wanderlust partners, including:
