About This Event
MBCC will host the 22nd Annual Against the Tide Cape Cod event on August 14th at DCR’s Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA. This event will feature 1-mile recreational or competitive swims, ½-mile recreational swim, 5K or 10K runs, and a 3-mile walk. The event will also feature a USMS sanctioned 1-mile swim for USMS members only. All participants will receive an event t-shirt (while supplies last). Prizes will be awarded for the top swim and run finishers. Participants are invited to enjoy refreshments on the beach following their event.
Additionally, MBCC will host the 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 full marathon option. All participants will receive a Participant Fun Pack, including an event t-shirt, participant medal, swim cap or bib, and sponsor items.
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.
