7:30 AM – 3:30 PM PST

Check in and bag check open at 7:30 AM, and the event starts at 9 AM.
Please arrive early to enjoy the Kula Market and allow plenty of time for bag check and check-in.

Wanderlust 108 is a rain or shine event.


Santa Monica Pier
200 Santa Monica Pier
Santa Monica, CA 90401


We highly recommend giving yourself extra time for parking, so plan ahead for a stress-free day.

A website with parking information is available here.
CLICK HERE to reserve a parking space now using the Park Me app.

City Lots: There are many parking lots and garages in Santa Monica that you can choose from, but if you are staying for just a short time, the best place to park is at any of the city owned lots. You get the first 90 minutes FREE.

Beach Parking: The parking lots along the beach offer reasonable flat parking rates, but they fill up fast.  If the lots are full, we recommend parking near 3rd street, which is within easy walking distance to the beach and pier.

Street Parking: Santa Monica has a lot of metered parking in the area.  Meters typically charge $1 – $2 per hour with a 2-hour time limit.  This 2-hour time limit is a strict parking maximum for Santa Monica streets.  Parking in the same spot for more than 2 hours is not permitted so be sure to keep an eye on the time.


Teams of 4 or more individuals will each receive an email from Square with a $5 off Wanderlust merchandise on purchases of $20 or more. This offer is only valid on the day of the event and cannot be combined or redeemed for cash. This is not valid online.


  • Bring your photo ID and PDF ticket, printed or digital, to check in upon arrival.
  • Your phone loaded with the Wanderlust – Find Your True North app. It’s the guide in your pocket for Wanderlust 108 Los Angeles.
  • Download the Charity Miles app to support the cause closest to your heart during the 5k!
  • Please remember to come prepared with your sneakers and a yoga mat!
  • We want you to enjoy the sun, but stay safe in it, too. Since you’ll be outdoors, don’t forget your sunscreen, sunglasses, hat and reusable water bottle.
  • If you want to store your mat and belongings during the run, you’re welcome to bring a backpack. See below for more info on bag check.
  • Layers: We want you to be comfortable no matter what the weather brings, so come prepared with layers that you can add or subtract depending on the temperature. Bring your hoodie or a light jacket — and a rain jacket just in case! The event will go on rain or shine. If there is lightning we’ll pause until we have been in the clear for 30 minutes.


All items must be contained in a bag in order to be checked, and you will need to provide your bag check ticket number to redeem your items. You’re welcome to pick up your items after the yoga class.

(Wanderlust is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.)

PIcnic Lunch

After a long day of food for the soul, you’ll need some healthy sustenance. This year, our picnic lunch features a heart-gratifying and body-fueling meal from Whole Foods Market®.

Get ready to refuel after our mindful triathlon with a choice between a protein-powered chicken wrap or veggie and wheat-free sandwich, a piece of organic fruit, roasted nut mix, and a piece of chocolate.  Remember, the Picnic Lunch cannot be purchased at the event.
