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!


Event Start Location
Presque Isle State Park, Beach 11

Course Description
While our venue at Presque Isle State Park in Erie, PA is scenic, the Barber Beast is definitely no walk in the park. You will take on 10 miles of sand, water, and trails – it’s the nature of the Beast!

Awards
The Elite wave takes the Beast to the next level, offering timing and a chance to win first place for male and female. Both winners will receive custom, framed artwork created by adults at Barber National Institute and a free registration for the 2019 Barber Beast on the Bay.
Beast Fundraisers compete all year leading up to the event. While their goal is to each raise $500 for a free registration, many go above and beyond that amount to further support Barber National Institute. The day of the event we honor our Beast Fundraisers with a special ceremony at the finish line at noon and huge prizes to the top three fundraisers. Prizes in the past include a GoPro4, kayak and carrying rack, Amazon Fire, Amazon Echo, etc.


Post Race Activities
You’ve crossed the line, received your kick’n medal, and are now set for the post-race festivities! Grab some grub, snap a selfie with the Beast, and dance the day away!

Parking
Both participants and spectators are welcome to park at Waldameer’s Water World parking lot off of Peninsula Drive. Parking is always free! What’s better than that? How about a free shuttle to the start line?! We encourage all participants to park at Waldameer, check in, utilize the bag drop (there is no place to store your goods at the start), and shuttle out with the crew to the start. The shuttle offers multiple stops on the way there and back for spectators to stop at various obstacles along the course to cheer.
