Citing “several external circumstances beyond our control,” Wildflower Experience organizers have made “the difficult decision” to cancel its iconic triathlon festival for 2019. Organizers promise a “better than ever” event for 2020, and are offering a priority entry process for 2019 entrants. Full refunds will be made to all of this year’s registrants.

Wildflower has had its share of setbacks. Extreme drought conditions from 2013 through 2016 forced the event to run on an altered course, resulting in decreased participation. Race director Terry Davis put the event “on hold” for 2017 but under new ownership the beloved triathlon festival came back strong with added events in 2018.
