10th Annual Grandman Triathlon

Mobile Baykeeper is celebrating the 10th annual Springhill Medical Center Grandman Triathlon on May 31st at the Fairhope Municipal Pier at 7 am.

Triathletes begin the race jumping off the Fairhope pier straight out into Mobile Bay and swimming 1/3 of a mile alongside the Fairhope Pier. After the swim, they immediately bike 18 miles throughout the city of Fairhope across grueling hills and finish the race sprinting a 5k alongside Mobile Bay.
