Panicking Poultry 2014 and Beyond

by Riptide Multisports on October 17, 2014

This is a much over-due post, so my apologies if you’ve landed here searching for information on the 2014 Panicking Poultry event. The good news is: the race is on! Per tradition, it will be held on November 22nd. The better news: it’s now under the direction of Jill and Darrin of Racing Underground (the same folks who took over direction of the Littlefoot Triathlon). You can expect the event to be better than ever. For more information, and to register, visit the [new] official race site here.

You might be wondering with both Panicking Poultry and Littlefoot no longer under the direction of Riptide, what’s to become of Riptide? That’s a great question and one that I am going to take my time answering. Right now my focus is on my 3-month-old son and Powder7. Once I have a plan for Riptide, you’ll be the first to know. In the meantime, I hope to toe the line with you at the Boulder Reservoir on November 22nd!
