4/29/20 Update: SeaWheeze 2020 has officially been cancelled.
It’s the right call, but still a disappointment. SeaWheeze is my favorite race in a wonderful city, and I was really looking forward to it after my work schedule clashed with the race and I had to go virtual in 2019.
On the bright side, all registered runners will still receive this year’s shorts. A few of you have asked about the special edition merch, and I’m not sure what will happen. Will it mean that the inventory will be a free for all for all virtual runners? Anything is possible. 🙂
As we continue to monitor COVID-19 and the quickly changing landscape, we have made the decision to cancel the lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon and Sunset Festival. All registered runners will need to choose from our refund options by May 29. Learn more: https://t.co/m2M7fZezRM pic.twitter.com/j0tsX2d8Me

Spring races are kaput. Summer event cancellations continue to roll out. A question that a lot of us have is… will lululemon’s 2020 SeaWheeze Half Marathon become another COVID cancellation?
I reached out on Twitter, and here is the reply I received:
All of us at lululemon continue to pay close attention to the coronavirus, and its potential impact to our teammates, friends and families across the globe. Throughout this period, we have continued to follow guidance by public health agencies and experts to ensure the safety and well-being of our communities. Should anything in regards to SeaWheeze change, we will update our guests accordingly.
In accordance with the guidance provided by public health agencies and experts we have made the decision to cancel all of our events up until July 31.
We’re continuing to monitor the situation for our event beyond that date and are committed to providing our runners with an update before the SeaWheeze training program starts on May 11. If you have any other questions, our team is always here.
No decision yet, but at least we have a May 11 update to look forward to. I’m not sure if that will be a decision, but… it’s something.
