Annual Against the Tide fundraiser to be held both virtually and in-person
Region – 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 20-26 and Against the Tide August Virtual Event – August 8-14. 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.
Additionally, MBCC will hold an in-person event on Aug. 14 at DCR’s Nickerson State Park featuring a competitive 1-mile swim, recreational half-mile and 1-mile swims, 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).
