Sea Wheeze Merch in Australian Version of Runner's World Mag

Spotted in the Australian/New Zealand version of Runner's World Magazine - a lulu ad featuring Sea Wheeze merchandise. I just flipped through my latest RW and didn't spot this ad. Maybe the SW stuff is only coming to Aus/NZ. A reader commented that she had been told at the Sea Wheeze store that they had only received a partial shipment of their stuff for the race. Maybe they are getting rid of leftovers? I guess we'll find out soon enough. (Thanks to Ms. J. for the photo.)

I am from Australia and the ed at my local store in Melbourne told me a few werks back they were getting in some sea wheeze merchandise. Looks like it is hitting store.

Why is the upload delayed today? I'm falling asleep

Lol - did you forget to turn your clock this weekend? It's always around 11:15 pm pacific time.

LOL. I was wondering the same thing - thinking it was delayed. Sorry, no DST where I live so that didn't come to mind. Oh well, will check again in an hour.

Lol I just relocated to the Middle East and there is no daylight time savings in here, so clocks weren't turned in any direction. Obviously forgot about that in US.
Will sleep another 50 min then ;-)

I brought a spry blue racing length CRB with the running girl and dots down the back from the markdown rack from my store in Australia just after the Sea Wheeze was held. It is a luxtreme version and does not wick sweat at all. I have stored it away until winter. It's a while ago now but I'm pretty sure I saw the lime green striped top from Sea Wheeze as well. I think they only had one size of each so it looked like they were getting rid of extra stock.

Those were two tops that were leftovers from the Sea Wheeze. They had lots of racing length CRBs left at the end.

I have been told that only Australia decided to purchase the sea wheeze product lines, it won't be arriving in North America.

The magazine pic...I don't recall that particular merchandise for sale a the SW store (color/patterns, yes). Newly created items?

I just hope SW gear does not show up in NA LLL stores.

I remember those two ... I had that tank in my hand and decided not to buy it (I think it's a light as air) :) The bra is a stuff your bra ... I have a stripy one.

And ... it makes sense that Oz/NZ bought the lines, but not NA considering the season. But it would work here in CA as well!! :)

reply on book


Hi Eric,
Since we're heading into the winter season I don't think we'll be seeing SeaWheeze gear in North America. As Australia moves into their run season, we're excited to support our guests and local athletes with this technical gear. There was miscommunication with our buyers for the gear as well as the SeaWheeze event. We wanted the items to be exclusive for the race although we should have said the product would be available for the first time in North America at the SeaWheeze showcase store.

Interesting, Eric. So Australia only, huh? Australia ebayers/angels, now is your chance to make a mint. ;-)

@ Jen 7:09 AM, thanks, I didn't recall seeing those items.

Thanks 1:05 and thanks Eric.

Way to backpedal LLL saying SW items would be available for the first time at the SW store and then elsewhere. As long as it stays in Aus/NZ, fine! Whatever with eBay and if people sell and others purchase, that's to be expected. I have the satisfaction of knowing I ran the race and bought my items personally, and not everyone in NA has them.
