The Heel & Crank Duathlon is a very popular duathlon in Alabama that is put on by the Team Rocket Triathlon Club with all proceeds benefitting ALSA in memory of local triathlete, Darin Kruse.

Course will exit Goosepond Colony and bike towards the historic Jackson County Courthouse.

Start, finish, and transition will take place at the main boat launch just off of US Highway 278.
