$25 for One Entry to the M.O.R.E Wildflower Obstacle Course (Up to $60 Value)
On Saturday, April 27, participants will get dirty running 4 miles worth of trails, tromping through mud holes, stomping grapes, and smashing through 12 total obstacles. The day’s events should be no surprise to entrants already familiar with M.O.R.E.—Mud, Obstacle, Run, Entertainment—and its mission to get participants dirty, while rewarding them for their speed, best costume, and even for their messiness. Packet pick-up is at 8 a.m. and the race begins at 10 a.m. with waves starting every 10 minutes.
If you ask the team at Tri-California Events what a triathlon is all about, you might hear about swimming, biking and running, but what you’ll hear the most about is how fun they are. As each racing season emerges, the team gets to work running fun races from the mud-filled M.O.R.E. Wildflower Obstacle Course in the spring to Scott Tinley’s Triathlon in fall, replete with on-road and off-road options. One of their most popular events is the Wildflower Triathlon, now one of the largest triathlons in the world. During this packed event many athletes camp out for the weekend to ensure a memorable experience and to make sm’roes as race fuel. Tri-California’s team also runs the San Francisco triathlon at Alcatraz, which includes a swim portion that sends participants partway to famed Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay.
