If, like me, you are far too cheap to pony up $100 to participate in the Beast on the Bay, an extreme obstacle course challenge to be held on September 7 at Presque Isle this summer, it looks like you’ve got options.
I received this from race organizers today:
Barber Beast on the Bay is an extreme obstacle course challenge that will take place along Lake Erie at Presque Isle State Park. The total course length will be a grueling 12+ miles, but individuals of all fitness levels are encouraged to participate as there will be turn-around points marking 4, 6, and 8-mile routes.
The obstacle course is designed by a U.S. Navy SEAL who has some hardcore challenges in store for competitors so sign up and prepare to scale walls, traverse bodies of mucky water and race through lots and lots of sand!
Cold beer, refreshments and live music await you at the finish line… so run fast!
Thanks to suggestions from many of our Beast followers, we are now using Active.com for our registration. This gives participants the option of getting a reduced price or even free registration if they would like to fundraise for the Barber National Institute.
When you go to the registration page on Active.com, you may choose from three options:
- Pay $100 registration fee, no fundraising commitment
- Receive a $50 discount by committing to fundraise $300 for the Barber National Institute
- Register for free by committing to fundraise $550 for the Barber National Institute ($1.00 processing fee applies)
If you choose to fundraise, Active.com makes it very easy with all of the tools to create a fundraising webpage to send to your family and friends. You can ask them to help you “beat the beast” and support this worthy cause, and they can quickly and easily make a donation on the secure site.
By participating in Barber Beast on the Bay at any level, you are helping the Barber National Institute provide greater hope and opportunity for children and adults with disabilities. And you’ll have a great time proving that you can “beat the beast.”
It’s not too early to register!
