bighorn trail run

travel and lodging

So, How do I get to Sheridan?

        The races are called "Wild and Scenic" for a reason. The remote location of the Bighorn Mountains has provided the perfect environment for a grueling mountain run. This "Wild and Scenic" run is easily reached by Interstate 90, if you choose to drive. However, if a road trip is not in your future, you may decide to travel by air. Sheridan County Airport will bring you right to our door. Billings Montana is the most affordable choice. Logan International airport is located 130 miles north of Sheridan. From the airport, you would need to rent a car. Billings is the largest city in proximation to Sheridan and would be the least expensive choice. Casper's Natrona County airport is also a possible destination. It's located about 140 miles south of Sheridan and would also require the rental of a car. For more information on the airports located near Sheridan, check out the links below:

Tongue River Community Center is offering accommodations at the High School in Dayton. They are offering gym, car, or tent sites for a very good price! Registration form will be posted here soon.

TV’s are located throughout the building.  Registration form will be posted here soon.

Lodging will be limited again this year. Do not delay getting your reservations. There will be a conflicting event on the same weekend as our race bringing  a large number of people to our area. The Bighorn Country Concert is planned for the weekend of June 17-19. If you have not already made lodging reservations, please do so as soon as possible to confirm your stay! Runners may wish to avoid some of the lodging options in Sheridan due to noise from the concerts. If you are bringing family and friends, attending the concerts may be something that interests you. There are some big Country Music names coming to Sheridan! Below is a link to the Bighorn Country Concert information, motels for runners to avoid, and motels we encourage.
