Sat 16 May WANDERLUST 108 MELBOURNE (VIC)
Wanderlust 108 is a triathlon unlike any you've ever known. This "mindful triathlon" brings three events together in your favorite local park: a 5k run, an outdoor yoga experience, and a guided meditation -- but with a twist. Unlike most triathlons, we place community above competition, inner peace above power, and self-awareness above strength. We prefer slow food to fast run times. For us, winning is measured in laughs shared and new friends made. And unlike many events offering yoga and meditation, we combine our practice with a whole lot of fun. While we're pretty sure you'll be challenged during the day, we are equally sure you'll have a great time doing so. From live bands and DJs on our main stage, to lawn activities like hooping, slacklining and acroyoga, to our local food and craft vendors, there's a lot to do when you're not on your mat.
