Barber Beast on the Bay Cheer Zones are back and bigger and better! We’ll have more Cheer Zones this year that all have great surprises in store for participants. Not only will they be cheering you on, but they will be adding to the fun and encouraging participant involvement.
Last year, participants selected the Gannon Ultimate Frisbee team as their favorite cheer zone. The Frisbee players are back and they’ll have an energetic tunnel to run through, just like the ones athletes run through at sporting events. This is sure to get participants pumped up for the beastly challenges.
Since most of the course is on the beach, why not have a little bit of beach fun? Gannon University’s Alpha Sigma Tau will be throwing a beach party. When you arrive at the party, will you hula with them, or sing along to the beach-themed tunes? This cheer zone will be sure to get you in the mood for the water and sand ahead!
The Waldameer hill near the end of the course is known to be a tough challenge for participants who are already worn out by the Beast. It has earned its title, “Heartbreak Hill.” Don’t be cruel, you say? No—we wouldn’t let you face this alone! The Erie Playhouse will be there with the cast of Elvis Has Left the Building for some gyrating and a spectacle that will give you the final boost you need. You will also find the Erie Playhouse and the casts of All Shook Up and The Little Mermaid at other points of the course to keep you energized and pumped up for the obstacles ahead.
