Mullet Man Triathlon in Gulf Shores
This weekend is the Annual Mullet Man Triathlon. This Triathlon has proven to be a definite addition to the Annual Interstate Mullet Toss and Great Gulf Coast Beach Party. The Mullet Man Triathlon, a high quality event, promises a great course, super volunteers, awards 3 deep and a post-race party with fabulous food and fun. A portion of the proceeds will go to local youth charities in Florida and Alabama. All activities begin and end at the World Famous Flora-Bama Lounge & Oyster Bar. Package pick-up is on Friday, April 20 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 – 7:00 a.m. the day of the event at the Flora-Bama Lounge. A post race celebration will take place shortly after the race (this is the real reason people do the Triathlon). Great food and drinks will be provided. The swim will be a ¼ mile in the Gulf of Mexico. The bike segment of 17 miles will be on paved four-lane highway (Alabama Hwy 182) heading west 8.5 miles and return to the Flora-Bama Lounge. Bike helmets are required. The 4-mile run will begin at the Flora-Bama Lounge, heading west under the Perdido Pass Bridge and back.
