Boasting one of the largest elite fields, the Wildflower's Stairway of Champion showcases the depth of the elite field over the years.  Known as a launching pad for many top triathletes you will see Wildflower is on the list of must do - must win events.  Each year records are broken, stories are told and history is made


Jesse Thomas:

"Wildflower has been unique since the beginning.  It allows you to hang out with everyone in a Woodstock like atmosphere, I love the event, the people that organize it. It’s symbolic in the sport, triathlon in its essence.  Something I hope this sport can maintain as it grows. "  Count me in for 2018!


Liz Lyles: 

"They have managed to create one of those very special experiences that no one will be able to come close to replicating anywhere in the world. Because of them, the competitors they attract are the type of people who create an ambiance and atmosphere that is almost magical. Of all the events in which I participate each year, this is the one I look forward to the most. Although long course triathlons around the world tend to attract a special breed of competitor that I find appealing, the people who come to Wildflower are yet a step above that. It's all just very, very special and makes for a great weekend. It's all very humbling to know that I'll now be a permanent part of the amazing history of this one-of-a-kind event. Excited for the 2018 Race!"

Triathlon team / Club Benefits – We have Triathlon Programs for You!

Whether you're just starting out or you're a seasoned athlete, you can find a group that is right for you and your racing goals. In addition to group training opportunities, the fun and camaraderie is priceless. You will create memories and form friendships by sharing your passions with other like-minded people.

At Tri-California we feel triathlon teams and clubs create the sense of community that Wildflower is all about.  To find a triathlon club near you or to register for Triathlon Team/Club benefits with Tri-California contact us at promotions@tricalifornia.com

Accommodations / WF Camping

Wildflower is known as the Woodstock of Triathlon, but we have come a long ways since love, peace, music and tent camping in the great outdoors. While we want to stay true to our roots and keep Wildflower special in so many ways, we get the need to have options.

What our Athletes are Saying!

Great triathlon. This was actually my first race! So it is dear to my heart.

Great triathlon. This was actually my first race! So it is dear to my heart.

You can't really go wrong with thousands of people that exercise on a regular basis and are out in the sun all day. The sport is great in that it allows for anyone to do it. The people are so nice and the volunteers and spectators and athletes that will cheer every last person on to the finish will drive you to push yourself beyond what you ever thought you could do.

I love this race!!!  Each year provides new and exciting challenges that even the best of the best come back to defend their title.

I may be bias but I say it was absolutely fabulous. The bike ride is great. Know that there are some good hills, especially after mile 42 (Nasty Grade and Heart Rate Hill) but that's why this race is so great - the challenge :)

You won't find another race where thousands of triathletes will camp at the race and that has the party feel of Wildflower. It's like Woodstock and Burning Man meets a triathlon.
