15 amazing moments from our Bicoastal Biathlon in NYC

nyc_biathlon_collage_575If you had to navigate through mobs of chic, sweaty women who looked like they were having a total blast this Saturday in New York’s Flatiron District, you probably stumbled upon the first weekend of Well+Good’s bad-ass Bicoastal Biathlon, presented by Athleta.

At the event, more than 100 super strong “biathletes” participated in back-to-back boutique fitness challenges at eight of the city’s hottest studios. Team Cardio hit Barry’s Bootcamp followed by cycling at Swerve, Team HIIT and Chill took on Exhale’s Core Fusion Extreme followed by a vinyasa flow at Laughing Lotus Yoga, Team Row and Plyo rowed at CityRow and did yoga-burpees at The Movement’s CrossFlowX, and Team Sculpt conquered an athletic Tone House session followed by strengthening Sculpt Fusion at Uplift. (Exhausted, yet?)

After the workouts, everyone headed to the healthy after-party at the Athleta Flatiron store for much-needed rejuvenation, which included delish LuliTonix blended elixirs, cold-pressed Suja juices, Paleo-bites from Kettlebell Kitchen, vegan soup shots from The Splendid Spoon, beauty touch-ups from W3LL PEOPLE, super-pretty braids and blowouts from Glamsquad, an epic raffle, and ridiculously amazing goody bags.

The best part? The event raised close to $5,000 for Girls on the Run, a non-profit mentoring organization that uses a 5K-training program as a basis to inspire young girls to be healthy and self-confident.

Click through to get a glimpse inside the event. (Warning: Serious FOMO awaits.) And if you’re in Los Angeles, join us for the second half of the Bicoastal Biathlon in Santa Monica on Saturday, October 25.
