For one thing, I'm a bit surprised there are only 8 Trifuelers doing wildflower according to profiles (5 long course, 3 olympic). Anyone else coming?
My questions, though, is if anyone here is a wildflower veteran and if they have any intel on the run. I realized today in a moment of panic that I run almost exclusively on a dead flat coastal trail, but that the wildflower run course profile looks like a monster. I headed out and did a 6.5mi hill loop. Decent time (50min) but my quads were definitely on FIRE. What I'd still be curious to know, too, is whether it's on roads, trails, gravel, dirt, whatever. Are the hills as nasty as they look on the profile? Any particular strategy recommendations for getting through it in one piece?
I'm not scared of climbing hills on the bike, but on the run it could be a different story.
