For most people, triathlons are endurance events designed to push them to their physical limits. But this Saturday, a different sort of athlete will descend on Harriet Island Park for the world’s first and only “mindful triathlon.” Presented by Wanderlust, a global yoga lifestyle group based in Los Angeles, the event will challenge participants to run a 5K, take on a 90-minute yoga flow class scored by a live DJ, and clear their mind and relax their body with 30 minutes of guided meditation. If that trio of mind/body/soul fitness isn’t enough, you can sign up for a number of different classes taking place throughout the day, such as aerial yoga, hooping, walking meditation, photography, and essential-oils workshops. Triathletes will also have the chance to sample local food, listen to musicians, and shop from artisanal vendors, making this the only multi-event challenge that will complete your spirit instead of testing your will.
