The Beast is ready for its next victims..... You think you can conquer The Beast? Prove it!!!
Run 1 Lap or 3, 6 or 12 hours (or as long as you can take the pain!) THE BEAST Trail (now officially called the West Feliciana Park Trail or something boring like that). For anyone not familiar with The Beast, it is a 5.62 mile loop with a good number of hills and a lot of tight turns. Considered one of the more technical trails in Louisiana, the Beast caters to all levels of runners. At any given position along the course, a runner is no more than a 3/4 mile walk through open grass field to S/F. Whether you want to run 2 laps are 10 this is going to be a day filled with tons of fun!
Runners must have adequate water/hydration pack (Recommended at least 24-48oz) ORANGE MUD Single or Double Barrels are a perfect fit for this course!
Start/Finish AID Station will have plenty of food, water, snacks, hydration, gu's, gels etc. along with a team ready to help you get in and out as soon as possible.
Midway AID Station will only have hydration and will be self serve.

i.e. Fastest runner to 11 laps or 12 wins. Again, ONLY 1 WINNER!
It is doable but it won't be easy!

Also, say you ran 11 laps and would win $500 but want to attempt to double your cash and run the 12th lap, you then void winning the $500. Basically, double or nothing! High risk, High reward!

Think high quality wide Full Grain single piece leather belt custom branded with "BEAST" and the number of laps ran. The belt will be snapback and ready to show off your next 100miler.
New Rules for 2017: First time runners and females that complete 7 or more Laps will get a Custom Belt. Moving forward to 2018 Males will need to run 8 laps and Females will need to run 7.
"No amount of running or training will prepare you for The Beast. You must find the beast in your heart and unleash it! If you want to see what you are made of then this is the ultimate test! I honestly think a most runners can do 7 Laps and earn the coveted belt. Question is....can they unleash the beast!"
- Jason Cheek - 2x Beast Belt Claimer 7 laps in 2015 & 9 Laps in 2016

You will most likely not get a shirt race day. Shirts will be available at Muddy Water Paddle Co. in Baton Rouge at a later date. Shipping will be available at racer's expense.
Also, unfortunately you will not receive the unique finisher medal due to the fact that orders have to be 100+ and we ordered for 140 to start and we expanded numbers due to so much request.
Thanks for understanding!
