Stearns Race Timing, LLC has partnered with Gearhead Outfitters in Jonesboro Arkansas to bring the Annual Gearhead Sprint Triathlon.
Craighead Forest Park located off Culberhouse Drive in South Jonesboro Arkansas will be the venue for the Gearhead Sprint Triathlon. Triathletes will Swim 500 yards in Craighead Forest Lake, Ride 10.2 miles along scenic Crowley's Ridge and Run one 2.9 mile loop on the park road.
The Gearhead Sprint triathlon will be a very beginner friendly tri. We plan small swim waves, A very well managed bike course and the park will be closed to traffic during the run.
