Adapted Course for Individuals with Disabilities

Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021


With safety protocols and restrictions now in place, the Barber Beast on the Bay 10 mile and adapted course will not take place as planned in 2020.  In its place is a new event, Barber Beast on the Block, that will enable participants to complete a virtual 5K when, where and how they want.

Barber Beast on the Bay offers an Adapted Course for individuals with physical or intellectual disabilities

The one-mile course held at Waldameer Park is primarily on paved road and features fourteen obstacles that involve pulling, pushing, carrying and navigating ramps. The fully accessible adapted obstacle course coincides with the 10 Mile Challenge, as the two courses meet up for a final obstacle and participants cross the finish line all together!

All participants are welcome to have an able-bodied "course buddy" accompany them free of charge if needed and many Barber Beast on the Bay volunteers are on the course to provide assistance.  All obstacles are optional and can be completed by participants who are ambulatory or using a wheelchair, walker, etc.

Advance registration for the adapted course ends on Friday, September 3, 2021.  After that date, late registration will be offered the morning of the event at Waldameer Park.

  • Cost is $25 and includes a Barber Beast on the Bay medal and t-shirt
  • Optional "Course Buddy"
  • Must be at least 12 years of age
