Set against the backdrop of beautiful Hopkinton State Park, Against the Tide offers something for all outdoor enthusiasts. Participants can enjoy the park's pristine beach and water for the half-mile paddleboard, competitive 1-mile swim, 1-mile and ½ mile recreational swims, and 2-mile kayak events, as well as a tree-lined rolling paved course for both the USATF certified 5K and 10K runs, and the 3-mile fitness walk. All ages and abilities are welcome to choose from up to 4 of these exciting activities. The event also offers an Aquathon "Splash and Dash" component, where participants "splash" in the competitive 1-mile swim and immediately "dash" in 5K or 10K run (distance chosen by the participant).
Participants may register as an individual or as part of a team. Registration is $40 per adult per event activity and $25 per student per event activity. 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.
