About the Race: The Publix Grandman Triathlon takes place on Saturday, June 2 at the Fairhope Pier. Racers begin the race by jumping off Fairhope Pier and swimming 1/3-mile to the shore. Following the swim, racers bike 18.6 miles, beginning up a steep hill before riding through miles of rolling countryside. Racers conclude this sprint triathlon with a 3.1 mile run through the streets of downtown Fairhope and finishing along Mobile Bay. Registration is open to individual and team racers.
