Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) is hosting its annual, statewide Against the Tide athletic fundraising events as both virtual and in-person events this summer. MBCC will hold two in-person events: one on June 18th at DCR’s Hopkinton State Park in Hopkinton, MA and one on August 13th at DCR’s Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA. These events will feature 1-mile recreational or competitive swims, ½-mile recreational swim, 5K or 10K runs, 3-mile walk, and a 1-mile USMS sanctioned swim.
Note: If we are unable to host the Against the Tide in-person events due to Covid restrictions, your registration will be transferred to the Against the Tide Virtual event of the according month. Refunds will not be issued. Additionally, MBCC will host two virtual events each with an 8-day participation window: Against the Tide June Virtual Event – June 11th – 18th and Against the Tide August Virtual Event – August 6th – 13th. The virtual event components include 1-mile recreational or competitive swims, ½-mile recreational swim, 5K or 10K runs, and a 3-mile walk. 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. All participants will receive an event t-shirt. Prizes will be awarded for the top swim and run finishers of the in-person events.
