SATURDAY JUNE 1, 2019. FAIRHOPE MUNICIPAL PIER. 7 A.M.
Racers begin the race by jumping from the end of Fairhope Pier into Mobile Bay and swimming 1/3-mile to the shore. Following the swim, racers bike 18 miles, beginning up a steep hill before riding through miles of rolling countryside and continuing through the quaint city of Fairhope. Racers conclude the triathlon with a 5K run alongside scenic Mobile Bay, crossing the finish line at Fairhope Park, where they are welcomed with medals and a variety of refreshments from cheering volunteers.
In its fifteenth year, the Grandman has become one of Fairhope’s premier annual events, attracting individual and team racers of all ages and skill levels from around the Southeast and beyond. Last year, 589 racers, 150 volunteers, and 50 sponsors participated in the event, and a bigger turnout is anticipated this year.
Proceeds from the race benefit Mobile Baykeeper and myTeam Triumph: Southern Alabama. For information regarding registration, volunteering and sponsorship opportunities, please visit www.mobilebaykeeper.org/grandmantriathlon or contact email@example.com.
