12th annual Beaver Creek Slide @ Dahlin residence
May 2 @ 8:00 am

SHERIDAN — The 12th annual Beaver Creek Slide and third annual Beaver Creek Bike Slog will take place May 2, with part of the proceeds to benefit the Sheridan Community Homeless Shelter operated by Volunteers of America.

The homeless shelter will receive $12.50 of each individual’s entry fee.

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 Bighorn Mountain foothills. The 3.5-mile course loops through the Wild Turkey and Beaver Creek subdivisions.

The courses are well marked and have aid stations.

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

Walkers for the half marathon will start at 8 a.m. May 2, and runners will 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 need to yield to runners and stay on the right side of the road while runners stay to the left.

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.

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