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 MORE 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 s'mores as race fuel.

Though some participants choose to run and others to walk, everybody who participates in the Color Dash experiences a transformation. As participants make their way through the 5K Color Dash and UVSplash courses they are subjected to bursts of color; additional events include Zombies by Color Dash, which adds the undead to the equation. Though the color will wash away, the memories will remain forever in the minds of all participants who aren't goldfish. Proceeds from Color Dash events benefit local children's charities and organizations.

The 5K Fun Fest helps runners stay active, but it also channels running for a good cause, inviting racers to test their endurance while raising money and awareness for special-needs support groups and programs. Participants are invited to walk, run, or bunny hop the 5K at their own pace, which puts an emphasis on the importance of enjoying the journey, as opposed to finishing the fastest. A special-needs parade follows the 5K, and other event highlights include food, entertainment, and a community fair.
