Are you ready for the Summer Beast of Burden? Whether you are looking to complete your first ultra distance event, or are a veteran of the sport, the Summer Beast of Burden is a true test of your endurance, set along a historic path. Athletes will choose either the 100 miler or the 50 miler.
Athletes will start at Wide Water’s Marina where they will have access to showers, restrooms and our usual fully stocked aid station. They will leave the marina and run along a paved trail for approximately 1 mile where they will cross one of Lockport's historic draw bridges and then run along the Historic Erie Canal Towpath.
Athletes will run approximately 6 miles to another fully stocked aid station and a chance to get out of the sun. Athletes will then head out for another 5.5 miles to the Village of Middleport, where they will reach a third aid station and turn-around.
Our aid stations have hand down the best volunteers you will ever find, and all of the ultra food you will need to fuel your run, including Heed, Water, Coffee, Coke, Mountain Dew, gels, grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken broth, fresh pizza, pancakes, donuts and...well, you'll have to show up to see!
On to what you have come to love, The BoB Shwag-Bag! We've received a lot of compliments on our Shwag-Bag and we're doing our best not to let you down. Each race they've gotten better and better so, when will it end? Not this race! Last year we introduced "The Double Beast Buckle" and it's back! Not only do we have a really cool belt buckle, we give any 100 mile participant a "Double Beast Buckle" if they can finish both the Winter BoB 100 & Summer BoB 100 in the same year.
So, You think you've got what it takes? We've closed off registration early every race so don't wait, sign up today and get ready to unleash The Beast!
