2020 Spudman Triathlon

The Burley Lions Club puts on the Spudman Triathlon each year on the last Saturday in July. This is a family friendly event featuring a 1.5K swim in the Snake River and a 40K bike ride and 10K run in the beautiful countryside of Burley, Idaho. Registration opens on January 1st each year at 12:00 PM MST.

We will continue having a Spudman Sprint distance this year to go along with our regular olympic distance triathlon. It will start near the boat docks and feature a shortened course while finishing at the same finish line as the olympic. The Spudman Sprint will be limited to 300 participants, so be sure to register early. The sprint course is outlined on the course page. Sign up to our email list to stay up to date on the latest Spudman news.

The 2020 Spudman Triathlon will be July 25, 2020.

Spudman 2020 Triathlon countdown


This year we are offering the opportunity for athletes and their families to participate in a service project on Friday before the race. We are partnering with the Magic Valley Humanitarian Center based here in Southern Idaho. Through the Center, participants will be able to make homeless mats and hygiene kits that will go to serve those in need in the area.

We invite you to donate to the Center during registration to help them purchase supplies for the hygiene kits. The more donations we receive, the more kits we can create. It costs us about $10 per kit. Details on the kits and the homeless mats can be viewed at mvhumanitarian.org
