Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will be holding its annual, statewide Against the Tide multi-sport event again in 2019. Set against the backdrop of beautiful Nickerson State Park, Against the Tide offers something for all outdoor enthusiasts. Participants can enjoy Flax Pond's pristine beach and water locale for the half-mile paddleboard, competitive one-mile swim, one-mile and half-mile recreational swims, and two-mile kayak events. The USATF certified 5K and 10K runs and 3-mile fitness walk route boast a paved tree-lined rolling course through Nickerson State Park. All ages and abilities are welcome to choose from up to four of these exciting activities. The event also offers an Aquathon "Splash and Dash" component, where participants "splash" in the competitive one-mile swim and immediately "dash" in 5K or 10K run.

Participants may register as an individual or as part of a team. Registration is USD 40 per adult per event activity and USD 25 per student per event activity. Children under 10 may participate in any event free of charge. 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 swim, run, and Aquathon athletes, top age-group finishers, and top fundraisers.

MBCC will be honoring firefighters at all of their 2019 athletic fundraisers. MBCC invites firefighters and their families to walk as our guests at the Against the Tide events. If you are a firefighter or a family member and wish to attend, please email or call 1-800-649-6222 to register.

The statewide Cape Cod Against the Tide will be held for the 20th year at DCR's Nickerson State Park on Saturday, August 17, 2019. The event starts at 8:00 am and ends at 12:00 noon. Please visit or call 617-376-6222 for more information and to register.
