May 7 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

SHERIDAN — The 13th annual Beaver Creek Slide and fourth annual Beaver Creek Bike Slog will take place May 7. The Sheridan Community Homeless Shelter, operated by Volunteers of America, will receive $12.50 of each individual’s entry fee.

Last year’s races had competitors from across Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota.

Races include a half marathon and 3.5-mile walk/run. The half marathon is a loop course covering primarily dirt and gravel roads along the scenic Big Horn Mountain foothills. The 3.5-mile course loops through Wild Turkey and Beaver Creek subdivisions. The courses are well marked and have aid stations.

Walkers for the half marathon start at 8 a.m. while runners start at 9 a.m. The 3.5 milers start at 10 a.m. Bike racers take the same course as the half marathon and do two loops starting at 8 a.m. Bikers should yield to runners and stay on the right side of the road while runners stay to the left.

Races will start at the Dahlin residence at 12 S. Sharptailed Road.

The entry fee is $30, payable to Wyoming Innovation. Entry forms can be picked up at the Sports Stop in Sheridan or via email by contacting bdahlin@wyoming.com.

Each entrant receives a long sleeved T-shirt. Lunch is provided, and door prizes will be drawn after the race. Awards go to the top three finishers in each race for men and women.
