You beat the Beast!  Well done!  Now you want to know your time and how you compare to others out there?  Race results are here!

Everyone who beasts is a winner because you’re all supporting services for children and adults with disabilities at the Barber National Institute. Timing results are only of participants who registered as Elite or Timed participants.

A highlight of Barber Beast on the Bay is the presentation of awards for the top three Elite Wave finishers and the top three fundraisers.
