Timbuk2, the original San Francisco bag company creating products for global individualists on the go, is pleased to announce its premier sponsorship of the 2013 Wildflower Triathlons Festival, a celebrated three-day event in Lake San Antonio, Calif. consisting of three separate triathlons and a sports expo on May 3-5, 2013.
In its first year as a sponsor, Timbuk2 will contribute custom embroidered bags to the Wildflower Triathlon, whose organizers anticipate more than 7,500 athletes and 30,000 spectators in attendance. Timbuk2 bags will be a prize to the top three men and women of the new Ultimate Wildflower Challenge (WF2), which combines the Long Course and Olympic Distance Triathlons. Custom Wildflower Timbuk2 bags will also be sold during the event and on Tri-California's website.
“Our partnership with the Wildflower Triathlon is a natural fit, as we share a common objective in promoting a healthy, active lifestyle amongst individuals of all fitness levels,” said Timbuk2 CEO Mike Wallenfels. “Whereas Wildflower consistently facilitates a memorable, encouraging environment to experience racing culture, Timbuk2 is equally committed to providing durable, functional gear to support the everyday active lifestyle.”
For over 30 years, the Wildflower has remained one of the most popular and longstanding triathlon events in the country, with its challenging course and lively campgrounds attracting a range of accomplished competitors and devoted spectators. This year’s event will feature a Long Course Triathlon, Olympic Distance Triathlon, and Mountain Bike Triathlon. Wildflower is owned and managed by Tri-California.
