Littlefoot Triathlon 2013

by Amy Dannwolf on May 13, 2013

I’m pleased to announce that Racing Underground is taking over the Littlefoot Triathlon for 2013 and beyond!  Jill and Darrin do a fantastic job organizing many endurance events throughout Colorado and I’m excited to see what they do with Littlefoot.  Please visit the new race website here.

I imagine this is how a parent feels when one of their children leaves the nest, it’s bittersweet.  I’m excited to see the race move on and flourish under Racing Underground’s direction and I’ll always savor the memories I had as race director (most of them, anyway ;-) ).

The best part of this?  I get to race Littlefoot again!

See you out there,

Amy Dannwolf

PS – The Panicking Poultry is still on this year (November 23rd) and will continue to be under the direction of Riptide Multisports.
