The Burley Lions Club puts on the Spudman Triathlon each year on the last Saturday in July for the last 35+ years! This is a family friendly event featuring a river-assisted downstream swim, relatively flat bicycle course, and easy run course.
The swim is current aided. Water temperature averages 68-71 degrees. The swim begins at Riverfront Park by the Burley boat docks and ends at Scholar Park by the Burley/Heyburn bridge.
The bike course is a fairly flat loop with just a few rollers. Race elevation is 4250′. Air temperature averages 51-84 degrees.
The 10k loop begins with a short steep hill and then levels to a mostly flat course. The run is on country roads and canal banks. The course is 70% asphalt, 30% gravel.
