What's Team BEEF?

Team BEEF is a group of beef-eating athletes who demonstrate that beef provides “fuel for the finish” by participating in running, cycling and triathlon events. These members recognize the nutritional benefits of lean beef and the vital role this high-quality protein plays in their training.  As each member strives to reach his or her goals, the Idaho Beef Council is excited to cheer them on and support their activities.  

Running Team

Beef-loving runners of all backgrounds and abilities are invited to join Team BEEF's running team.  As a member of our running team you'll be provided with a running jersey and you can be reimbursed for select runs/races in Idaho.   Currently there is a wait list to join the team. New members are added throughout the year as spots become available. To get on the wait list, the IBC must have a completed application on file.

Eat to Compete

Eating well is essential for optimal health and an active lifestyle. As an athlete, you’re all about strength and efficiency – of movement, of energy, even of mental preparation as you perform at your peak. 

If you think of your body as a machine, then muscles are the major moving parts that help sustain you during training and competitive events. Strong, healthy muscles are critical to your success. To build, repair and maintain lean muscle mass, your body needs the essential amino acids found in high-quality proteins, like lean beef. 

As part of a balanced diet, beef can give you the energy and nutrients you need to fuel you for the finish. Click on the links below to learn more about the benefits of lean beef protein.
