Exercising Demons - Franklin is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V given to protagonist Franklin Clinton by MaryAnn Quinn from the peninsula west of Paleto Bay, Blaine County.


Franklin Clinton goes to the beach on a peninsula just west of Paleto Bay and finds MaryAnn Quinn exercising on the beach. She spots Franklin and tells him not to look at her ass. Franklin states he wasn't and asks her what her plans are. MaryAnn, who is uncomfortable about her appearance, asks Franklin if he thinks she only swims because 'I float easily'. She then tells Franklin she is going to do a triathlon with Franklin responding that she has too much spare time. MaryAnn questions whether Franklin only likes stay at home cheerleaders and calls him pathetic. An angry Franklin states that he will compete with her in the triathlon and that he will beat her with MaryAnn saying 'I bet you like to beat women'.

The two begin running into the Pacific Ocean and swim across the bay towards Paleto Bay. After swimming across the bay the two begin cycling around a trail and a road, which includes cycling over a broken part of the road where both land safely on the other side. The two reach an open section of land, heading toward another peninsula to the north of Paleto Bay, and begin the running part of the triathlon. Franklin arrives at the finish line first and Franklin states that it is about participating not winning, which MaryAnn disagrees with. She calls herself a 'fat, unmarried, career-driven loser!' before running to a bicycle and cycling into the distance.

Secondary objective

Objective Description
Champion Win the race without taking any shortcuts.


  • A stunt jump can be completed during the mission while cycling.
  • As the two run towards the raised part of the peninsula, a woman asks Franklin if he has seen a dog. This is may be a reference to the dog who helps Franklin to find Dom Beasley and later informs him of Dom's suicidal plan to jump from the Land Act Dam into the small body of water below without any safety equipment, as the dog is not seen by anybody else in either mission.
