Barber Beast on the Bay

Link to your race page

Get ready to unleash the Beast! 10 miles, 30 obstacles, 1 goal: the credo of the Barber Beast on the Bay, a one-of-a-kind obstacle course race that combines natural and manmade obstacles with a location voted tops in Pennsylvania!
The sixth annual Barber Beast on the Bay is set for Saturday, September 8, 2018, at Presque Isle State Park (USA Today’s ‘Best Pennsylvania Attraction’) in Erie, PA. Participants will take on 10 miles of sand, water, and trails – it’s the nature of the Beast! Be ready to run, jump, climb and crawl across more than 30 obstacles on the shores of Lake Erie. And while you tackle your challenges during the Beast, you’ll also be helping the children and adults with autism, intellectual disabilities and behavioral health challenges at the Barber National Institute who take on their own obstacles on a daily basis, as the event supports the non-profit and its 5,370 individuals.
A one-mile adapted course will also be offered for those ages 16+ with physical or intellectual disabilities at Waldameer, a theme park in Erie, PA next to Presque Isle State park. The 10 Mile Course and Adapted Course come together for the final two obstacles and all participants cross the finish line together!
And, yes, we love all eyes on us – spectators are encouraged to cheer participants along the Barber Beast on the Bay 10 Mile Course and Adapted Course. All are welcome at the finish for our post-race festivities including music, dancing, food trucks and ice cold beer!
