About Barber Beast on the Bay

Barber Beast on the Bay is set for Saturday, September 7, 2024, 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 – all to prove they can BEAT THE BEAST! 

Be ready to run, jump, climb and crawl across more than 30 obstacles on the shores of Lake Erie at the biggest obstacle course race in Erie, PA!  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 daily, as the event supports the non-profit and its more than 6,200 individuals.

one-mile adapted course will also be offered for those ages 12+ 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 obstacles and all participants cross the finish line together!
