What is Barber Beast on the Bay?

Barber Beast on the Bay is the coolest one-of-a-kind adventure obstacle course challenge that combines natural and manmade obstacles with one of the most awesome locations on the planet.

The 6th annual Barber Beast on the Bay is set for Saturday,September 8, 2018 at Presque Isle State Park in Erie, PA. Participants will enjoy 10 miles of sand, water and trails in this unique setting, as well as be climbing, crawling, pushing and pulling across more than 30 obstacles on the shores of Lake Erie. The annual event helps support the Barber National Institute and its work with children and adults with disabilities and behavioral health challenges.   

A one-mile adapted course will also be offered for adults (age 16+) with physical or intellectual disabilities at Waldameer. The final obstacle joins with the 10 Mile Obstacle Course participants to then cross the finish line together!

Spectators are encouraged to cheer participants along the Barber Beast 10 Mile Obstacle Course and Adpated Obstacle Course, and to join in the post-event party at Waldameer Picnic Groves in Erie, PA afterwards.

You can receive a free or reduced registration by signing up to fundraise for the Barber National Institute.
