RACE IT: If you are an adventure seeker not afraid of roughin’ it

Known and loved as “the Woodstock of triathlon,” Wildflower is a multisport experience like no other. All the racers camp out at the venue in Central California wine country (just outside Paso Robles), and there is a distance to suit a variety of ambitions, from the mountain bike tri (0.25-mile swim, 9.7-mile bike, 2-mile run) to the challenging half-iron-distance race.
