Glöanna: A Sweaty Success!

posted on Monday, 21st July 2014by Sweaty Betty | 0 Comments

They came, they ran, they did yoga in the park - and that's before the prosecco and sushi brunch...

If you weren't in Battersea Park last Saturday, you may not have heard that the world's first 5K yoga run, Glöanna, had landed in London. 500 women descended on the start line for their shot of prosecco, before heading off to run the scenic 5K route. The course was littered with quirky motivational signs saying everything from 'Breathe, Laugh, Repeat' to 'You're Alive - Woo!', with a live DJ soundtrack to keep the spirits high. Post-run, the Glöanna (and Sweaty Betty) ladies hit the mat for an al fresco yoga class, stretching out their muscles and relaxing into savasana.
