Finally. A Triathlon You Don’t Have to Train For

For anyone who has ever been afraid to try their first triathlon (um … that would be all of us!), the Wildflower Triathlon is the race – and place – for you on May 4-6.

The Wildflower Experience isn’t just another triathlon. It’s a three-day party celebrating multi-sport, music, healthy living, and outdoor adventure. Packed with a full schedule of races, this iconic weekend triathlon festival boosts three action-packed expo venues featuring live, local, Central Coast bands and musicians, a celebration beer garden hosted by Firestone Walker Brewing Company, and wine tasting from the 15C Wine Bar.

Just a 45-minute drive northwest from Paso Robles, Lake San Antonio - the home of Wildflower - will surprise and delight you. It makes no difference if you come for the race or come for the music.


While the music, food and wine are great, this is still a world-famous triathlon, and the athletes will impress you. Known world-wide as an iconic, one-of-a-kind triathlon, Wildflower always attracts a star-studded line-up of professional and amateur triathletes from around the globe. There is a reason people are traveling to Wildflower from over 39 states and 13 different countries. No other race provides as much local, food, fun, music, and camaraderie!

In addition to the traditional Wildflower triathlon events like clinics and massages, there are healthy lifestyle activities for every level of current and aspiring athlete. On Saturday, you can enter a 10-mile trail run, participate in a two or six-mile stand up paddleboard race, run in a 5K, or take a yoga class in the park. On Sunday, you have another chance to paddleboard, run a 10K, or do both!


If you aren’t into competing, you can attend the CLIF BAR 80’s Tri-Geek Party Saturday night, head off on a solo kayak in the lake, enjoy a hike in the gorgeous, rolling hills of the Central Coast, and relax with some local wine and artisan food.

Most of the volunteers, guests and athletes camp on-site. Some bring tents, but others like to pamper themselves a bit more with new “glamping” options, which include yurt-like Bell Tents, nostalgic Tinker Tin trailers, and RVs. If camping isn’t your thing, you can also stay in an inn, hotel, or vacation rental in beautiful Paso Robles.



All events take place at Lake San Antonio, South Shore in Monterey County, CA.
