For the first time Tri-California Events, the organizers of the iconic event, are offering a more personalized race experience with a “block pricing” structure and added “club competition initiatives.”

This year’s registration will allow athletes to select their own race number and transition spot, similar to airline or concert seat selection process. Additionally, Wildflower triathlon is now part of the Tri Club Championship Series, with some of the top triathlon clubs in California allowing athletes to earn points and prizes for participation and age-group/gender placing.

“We are excited to bring continued dedication to the wildflower weekend which has always been a race that is built around community, experience and the consumer” said Founder and CEO of Tri-California Events Terry Davis. “This year, our athletes will have new opportunities to customize their experience with us in an effort to keep the tradition alive while bringing new things to the sport every year.”

Registration is open now at Wildflower.tricalifornia.com.
