MBCC Against the Tide Virtual Event
June 17 – August 12, 2023
Against the Tide is a family-friendly, multi-sport event to benefit the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC). MBCC is the only non-profit in the state dedicated to the prevention of breast cancer from environmental causes. The funds raised through Against the Tide help to support and expand our community education program Let’s Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures, MBCC Webinar Series, and the newly-expanded student environmental health program, Let’s Talk Prevention: Actions You Can Take. We are grateful to all of you who help prioritize breast cancer prevention. Above and beyond your commitment to participate in the Against the Tide event, we hope that you will also fundraise on behalf of MBCC and our important mission to change the legacy of breast cancer for future generations.
If you wish to participate in more than one event component (for example, 1-mile swim and the 3-mile walk), once you have input your information please click on the "Add a Race" button at the bottom of the page.
If you wish to transfer to a new sub-event, you can follow the instructions here to complete the swap - keep in mind there will be a $1.95 fee to facilitate the change.
Starting Friday June 16th, all registered runners/walkers will be provided with an online time submission link, direct from our timing friends at Second Wind Timing. Any day from June 16th - August 12th you can swim or run and then record and submit your time; if you are walking, you do not need to submit a time. Runners and swimmers are also asked to submit ‘proof of time,' either a photo of your GPS watch screen, or a screenshot of your smartphone running app showing distance/time. Results will be scored and award certificates will be emailed out to all participants.
*Runners that register in the middle of our virtual race dates will receive their Second Wind Timing invite email by the Monday following their registration.
Any questions or issues submitting your results can be sent directly to our event timers at Second Wind; firstname.lastname@example.org.
