Beaver Creek Slide
The 12th annual Beaver Creek Slide and third annual Beaver Creek Bike Slog takes place May 2, 2015. The Sheridan Community Homeless Shelter, operated by Volunteers of America, receives $12.50 of each individual’s entry fee.
Last year’s races had competitors from across Wyoming and Montana.
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 need to yield to runners and stay on right side of road while runners need to 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, Wyoming, or via email by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each entrant receives a long sleeved T- Shirt. Lunch is provided, and door prizes drawn after the race. Awards go to the top three finishers in each race for men & women.
