TRI THE GULF – TRIATHLON INFORMATION
The Mobile Bar Foundation is hosting its 2nd Annual Tri the Gulf Triathlon here on the island on Saturday, October 21. The event will be based at the Isle Dauphine complex with the swim portion of the race starting promptly at 7am. From there, participants will complete a 16.7 mile long bike ride and finish with a 3.25 mile run. The entire triathlon should be completed no later than 10am but during the three hour race numerous roads and the DI Bridge will experience partial closures and traffic delays to ensure safety. Police and volunteers will be stationed throughout the course to assist with traffic flow including escorted (one way) traffic on the bridge. Other streets that will be impacted include Orleans Drive, Bienville Boulevard, LeMoyne Drive, Hernando, Iberville and Indian. Please avoid these areas during the hours of 7am-10am And plan your travels accordingly. If you would like to serve as a volunteer and get up close to the action, check out the race website or contact Brandy Hambright (251) 438-2700 firstname.lastname@example.org to fill out a volunteer registration form.
