Activities: Adventure race, 8 Miles

The Ballard Beast is a unique race, celebrating the seafaring origins, geography, and community of Ballard - fueled by a belief that fitness and shared experiences are vital to the strength of our communities. Athletes will take on four beautiful loops that includes Shilshole beach, Shilshole marina, and Sunset Hill park. Athletes will be challenged physically and mentally as they take on new modalities each loop: run (1 loop), bike (2 loops), weighted backpack or vest (1 loop). Hydro-burbees (wade in mid thigh, and drop down to bottom of a push up) will greet the participants at each modality transition. The race creator is a Ballard native, and grew up on the course. Years running, walking, and riding the course have inspired bringing the Ballard Beast to life. Join us in this 1st annual event!

If you'd like to participate, but don't to want break a sweat, we need volunteers! See sign up details in "Volunteer" tab above.
