Race Description

Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will be hosting its annual, statewide Against the Tide athletic fundraising events as both virtual and in-person events this summer.

MBCC will host two virtual events each with a 7-day participation window: Against the Tide June Virtual Event – June 20th – 26th and Against the Tide August Virtual Event – August 8th – 14th . The virtual event components include 1-mile recreational or competitive swims, ½-mile recreational swim, 5K or 10K runs, 3-mile walk, ½-mile stand-up paddleboard, and 2-mile kayak. For participants who are looking to challenge themselves, there is an Aquathon option, consisting of a competitive 1-mile swim followed immediately by either a 5K or 10K run. New in 2021, the event will feature a half marathon option for the June event and a full marathon for the August event. All participants will receive a Participant Fun Pack, including an event t-shirt, participant medal, swim cap or bib, and sponsor items.

Additionally, MBCC is hoping to offer an in-person event on August 14th at DCR’s Nickerson State Park featuring a 1-mile swim, 5K or 10K runs, and a 3-mile walk. The in-person event is pending state approval. If, due to COVID restrictions, MBCC is not able to host this event in- person, all registrations will be transferred to the Against the Tide August Virtual Event. All in-person event participants will receive an event t-shirt. Prizes will be award for the top swim and run finishers.

Registration for both the virtual and in-person options is $40 for an individual participant, and $100 for a family registration (up to 5 family members). Participants may register as an individual or as part of a team. Participants are encouraged to fundraise beyond the registration fees, as all proceeds support MBCC’s unique goal of breast cancer prevention. Prizes will be awarded to top fundraisers.
