Due to high demand, Tri-California Events is offering an increased field over past years, meaning potential participants can register to take part in what’s been called the ‘Woodstock’ of triathlons.
The 30th annual event consists of three separate triathlons and a three day festival where participants, families and spectators camp out, listen to live music, and enjoy food vendors and race clinics.
“The festival’s celebrated history, and the encouraging and inspiring environment is like no other in sports,” noted Terry Davis, CEO Tri-California Events. “While it is a must stop for the elite triathlete, a first-timer will find that Wildflower will ignite a passion for the sport where we “exercise with purpose.”
The Long Course Triathlon (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run) is the marquee event and features a harrowing 56-mile bike ride around Lake San Antonio, which includes a notorious, five-mile uphill climb nicknamed ‘Nasty Grade’ and a backcountry trail that’ll prove to be a challenge for even the best triathletes. The Olympic Distance Triathlon (1.5k swim, 40k bike, 10k run) and its rigorous course through ‘Lynch Hill,’ will test the will of 3,000 amateur triathletes and will also serve as the Wildflower Collegiate Championship, open to triathletes currently enrolled in a college or university. The Mountain Bike Triathlon (.25 mile swim, 9.7 mile bike, 2.7 mile run) features an on- and off-road course that offers a great introductory challenge for the first-time triathlete.
Participants can choose to race individually, as part of a relay team or the Tri Club Competition, and even to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training.
