Registrations for the legendary triathlon and festival weekend, the Wildflower Experience 2019, are open now. The event returned in 2018 after the drought in Northern California ended, and the organisers hope the race will reach its original peak numbers in 2019.
The Wildflower Experience weekend boasts a full line-up of triathlon race distances, several run events, a music festival, stand up paddle board events, and a three-day Outdoor Yoga Experience on May 3-5, 2019 at Lake San Antonio in Monterey County, California.
Demand for the event is expected to be high and registration for all events is open at www.wildflowerexperience.com. Early bird rates are applicable until the 9th of October. The website contains more information about the weekend of events and camping and nearby lodging. New events will also be announced in the coming months.
In addition to the marquee long course race (1.9km swim/90km bike/21.1km run), the three-day endurance triathlon festival also includes Olympic Distance, On-Road Sprint and Off-Road Sprint triathlons, a Collegiate Championship, 5K/10K run, 10 mile trail run, SUP race and a variety of yoga classes and workshops. Additionally, participants can experience live bands, a beer garden, race clinics, exhibitor booths and outdoor activities throughout the weekend.
Wildflower started as a music festival in the early 1980’s before growing into an annual tri event, attracting thousands of participants and spectators. Over the years, the event has created a passionate and dedicated following amongst triathlon enthusiasts, many of whom flock to the California Central Coast each year to soak in the intimate setting. The unique atmosphere at Lake San Antonio led eight-time Ironman world champ Paula Newby-Fraser, a five-time winner of Wildflower, to dub the event as the “Woodstock of Triathlon.”
