  • Hopkinton State Park (map)

Information & Registration

As the state's leading breast cancer organization, Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) invites you to join us for our annual Statewide Against the Tide multi-sport events. Set against the backdrop of two beautiful state parks, Against the Tide features great 1-mile open water swims (both competitive and recreational), along with paddleboard, kayak, USATF certified 5K and 10K runs, and a fitness walk. For those looking to really challenge themselves, we are also featuring an Aquathon event, consisting of the competitive one-mile swim and your choice of either the 5K or 10K run.

Registration is just $40 per event activity. Participants can choose to participate in one, two, or three of these events, registering as an individual or as part of a team. All proceeds go towards MBCC’s mission of breast cancer prevention. The 26th annual Against the Tide will take place on June 16 at DCR’s Hopkinton State Park and the 19th annual event on Cape Cod will take place on August 18 at DCR’s Nickerson State Park.

We are reaching out to you with the hope that you will help us to spread the word with your friends and family. Please make your swim club, tri club or team aware of this event by forwarding the attached event poster. You can register for the event and/or start a team at

We hope that you will join us on the beach on June 16th or on August 18th!
