Beaver Creek Slide & Slog to Benefit Homeless Shelter

The organizer of the annual Beaver Creek Slide and Beaver Creek Bike Slog have announced that proceeds from this year's events will benefit the Sheridan Community Homeless Shelter.

The 12th annual Slide and third annual Slog will be on May 2. Entry fee is $30, payable to Wyoming Innovation, and $12.50 of each individual entry fee will be donated to the homeless shelter. The shelter is operated by Volunteers of America.

According to event organizer Bill Dahlin (DAH-lin), races include a half-marathon and 3 and one-half mile walk/run for both the Slide and the bike slog. Both are loop courses, with the half-marathon covering roads along the Big Horn Mountain foothills. The 3 and a half-mile course loops through the Wild Turkey and Beaver Creek subdivisions. The organizer said both courses will be well-marked, and aid stations will be provided. All races will start at 12 Sharptailed Road.

Each entrant will receive a long-sleeved T-shirt. The organizer said lunch will be provided, and door prizes will be awarded after the races. Awards will be presented to the top three men and women in each race. He said people from across Wyoming and Montana competed in last year's races.

Entry forms will be available at the Sport Stop in downtown Sheridan or may be requested by email by contacting
