Camping! Camping! Camping!

'A La Carte' Camping and Parking Passes are Available

_MG_9030If you did not purchase camping during registration, or if you need an additional pass, camping and parking passes are available for purchase through the Tri-California website (and the button below). Please note, spectators are no longer subject to a Festival Fee, but every vehicle must have a camping or parking pass associated with it.

Camping and parking passes are available at a discounted rate when purchased in advance, and it makes the whole process easier if you aren't fumbling with cash or credit when you arrive at the Front Gate. Purchase now and then just cruise on into the Park. (You will have to stop because there's a stop sign at the Front Gate and running it would be a crime, but it will be significantly faster than the alternative.)

Train at the Lake

Wildflower is approaching faster than we'd like to think or imagine. Are you ready to tackle the course? Keep your training and prep going strong by attending our Half-Day Training Clinic on Saturday, March 23rd!

The Clinic is set to be beneficial for athletes of all experience levels. We welcome you to join us at Lake San Antonio with Central Coast Tri Sport Club's coach Samantha Pruitt. Samantha will guide clinic attendees through a half day of swim, bike, and run training, as well as a nutrition seminar. The 5-hour clinic provides expert coaching and active training. Learn tactics to ease race day transitions, set up properly, and compete on Wildflower's infamous course. The cost is $35, and space is limited to enable personal coaching.

Experience the course firsthand, and learn valuable tips for transitions, open water swimming, and race-day fueling. Use this preparation to focus your training and face Wildflower with confidence (as it looms ever closer)!

Register for the clinic and find detailed information below.
