Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will be holding its annual, statewide Against the Tide Swim, Kayak, Walk, Run and/or Aquathon events again in 2017. The morning events consist of several components: competitive and recreational swims, recreational kayak, fitness walk, and USA Track & Field certified 5K/10K runs. Participants of all ages and abilities can choose 1, 2, or 3 of these exciting activities.

The event also offers an Aquathon “Splash and Dash” component, where participants “splash” in the competitive 1-mile swim and immediately “dash” in 5K or 10K run (chosen by the participant). Participants may register as an individual or as part of a team.

Registration is $40 per adult per event activity and $25 per student per event activity. Participants are encouraged to fundraise beyond these suggested minimums, as all proceeds support Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition’s unique goal towards breast cancer prevention. Prizes will be awarded to the fastest athletes and top fundraisers.

The statewide Metro-Boston Against the Tide will be held for the 25th commemorative year at DCR’s Hopkinton State Park on Saturday, June 17, 2017. The statewide Cape Cod Against the Tide will be held for the 18th year at DCR’s Nickerson State Park on Saturday, August 19, 2017. Both events start at 7:00 am and end at 12:00 noon.
