Take on the Misery Challenge 2018! Sign up now and start training for a once in a lifetime opportunity. Perfect for the competitive athlete or a family adventure. Racing starts and finishes from iconic Manchester By-the-Sea's Tuck's Point with a spin around historic Misery Island and back. Choose your "weapon!" Kayak, SUP, Row or even Swim these waters. Besides your "fan club" cheering you across the finish-line, music, micro-brew, tasty treats, kid games, awards and more await you on shore. 

BIG NEWS! 1. This year mother nature will be featuring HIGH-TIDE for us. Swimmers, I know you'll miss the run to the finish-line! :) 2. If water temps are over 60, we will be adding a separate award category for those without wetsuits... plus you get additional bragging rights! 3. We are looking to add female 14' SUP category if we have 4 or more 3 entries.

The Misery Challenge involves two different courses. Your event will determine the course you follow. Both however, feature some of the North Shore's (and the country's) most beautiful scenery and clean, crisp ocean water. Last year was the first time water enthusiasts had the opportunity to race from Manchester by-the-sea to Misery Island and the experience was epic. So, grab your friends and family as Misery (Challenge) loves company!
