By: Kelly Woodard
The world’s greatest beach party kicks off with the Mullet Man Triathlon Saturday, April 19th at 7:30 am at the world famous Flora-Bama Lounge located at 17401 Perdido Key Dr. This crowd favorite event promises a great course, super volunteers, awards three deep and overall, as well as a post-race party with fabulous food and fun.
The Mullet Man Triathlon has proven to be a fantastic addition to the Annual Interstate Mullet Toss, held this year from April 25-27th. The race will feature a swim, bike, run format and athletes of all ages and performance levels are encouraged to participate.
The swim portion of the race will be a 1/2 mile swim from the shore to a buoy and back 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 & Package. Bike helmets are required.
Finishing off the race is a 4-mile run that will begin at the Flora-Bama® Lounge, heading west under the Perdido Pass Bridge and back. Runners are encouraged to bring extra socks and shoes to make their final leg of the race more comfortable in the event that their initial pair gets wet or sandy.
