Barber Beast on the Bay offers an Adapted Obstacle Course for adults with physical or intellectual disabilities.

The one-mile course held at Waldameer Park is primarily on paved road and features 14 obstacles that involve pulling, pushing, carrying and navigating ramps. All obstacles are optional and can be completed by participants who are ambulatory or using a wheel chair, walker, etc. The fully accessible Adapted  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!
