Course Description:

10 miles, 30 obstacles, 1 goal: Beat the Beast! Whether you are an elite OCR addict or a new to the scene first timer, the Barber Beast on the Bay offers something for every level of competitor. Tackle insane terrains – from sand to mud to lake to swamp! The Barber Beast on the Bay combines natural and manmade obstacles with one of the best locations available -- the beach! While our venue is scenic, the Beast is definitely no walk in the park. The Barber Beast on the Bay takes place Saturday, September 8, 2018 in Erie, Pennsylvania on the shores of Presque Isle State Park. Participants are so hooked on the Beast they are returning for the 6th year in a row! Take it from our reviews: One person said ""The Beast made the Warrior Dash seem like a kid’s playground."" Another added, ""Mud, sand, water AND obstacles- does it get any better? Try it once- you’ll be hooked!"" Do you have what it takes to beat the Beast?

Aid Stations:

Over the course of ten miles, there are 6 hydration stations and 2 nutrition stations.


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.


Free! Gather up your friends and family in the trusty van to come cheer you and the team on! It is free to come, park, take the shuttle, and party! We offer a shuttle for participants and spectators down and back from Waldameer to Beach 11 with many stops along the way. If your cheer squad wants an opportunity to earn money for their hard earned signs and well-rehearsed chants, look into getting them involved as a Cheer Zone.


Parking is FREE. 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.

Post Party:

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!


Round up the crew to beat the Beast as a team! During registration, you can either start a team or join one. Contact the gang to get it together. You can register at separate times or all at once and get it all set. You pick!
