Grandman Triathalon with Mobile Baykeeper
About the race: The Publix Grandman Triathlon begins with the racers jumping off the Fairhope pier into Mobile Bay and swimming 1/3-mile to the shore. After the swim, racers immediately bike 18 miles throughout the city of Fairhope up a grueling hill and through miles of the scenic countryside before finishing the race with a 5K run alongside Mobile Bay.
“What’s so unique about this triathlon is that racers get to jump off of the pier and swim in open water,” said Casi Callaway, Mobile Baykeeper Executive Director and Grandman Race Director. “Safeguarding Mobile Bay for swimmers of all ages is what we do everyday at Mobile Baykeeper, so this race is very important to us.”
