We have been planning for the 2018 series for a long time and we are super excited to for next years participant swag. The 201 Cactus Flower Trail Series will be limited to 200 participants per event, so make sure you register soon.
NEW FOR 2018
For the 2018 season we are going green! This year we are focusing on helping mother earth by eliminating safety pins, water cups, water bottles and other items. Help us with this goal and you will be rewarded with each pledge.
We will be planting a tree at Estrella Mountain Regional Park with the funds collected from each pledge. When you pledge to bring your own race number belt or reusable handheld you will be saving and we will be using those funds to donate a tree. For every $120.00 saved a tree will be purchased and planted.
The 2018 Cactus Flower Trail Series will have a unique medal at each event. Each medal will be made out of a letter, when you collect all 6 medal you will spell the word FLOWER. (If you didn't participate in the 2017 you can purchase the CACTUS medals on our online store). When you put all 12 medals together you will have a unique medal spelling CACTUS FLOWER.
