Against the Tide is a multi-sport event which includes both a 1-mile competitive and 1-mile recreational open water swims, in addition to an Aquathon. All proceeds from the event benefit the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition and its mission of breast cancer prevention. We are especially excited to share the news as the June event in Hopkinton will commemorate our 25th year!

No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch.
If your workout group has never participated in the Hour of Power Relay, consider registering this year! The Hour of Power relay originated at the Division III collegiate swimming level, but has branched out in recent years to include Divisions I, II and III, as well as Club and Masters swim programs. The Hour of Power makes for a fun and challenging workout, while simultaneously raising awareness of Sarcoma Cancer, a rare soft-tissue cancer that took the life of Carleton College swimmer, Ted Mullin back in 2006. There are participation opportunities as well as fundraising opportunities. Your team's level of involvement is completely up to you! This memorial event is a great way to build spirit and camaraderie among your team.
If interested in participating, please check out the details and register your masters workout group: http://go.carleton.edu/HourOfPower
The date of the Hour of Power is Tuesday, 11/10/15... but can certainly be completed at any time that is more convenient to your program/swimmers.
Flyer is available here!

Wanted you to know the first Worcester Area Masters (WAM) open water swim this weekend was a huge success. "Miles 4 Michelle" was held Saturday 8/23 at Fort Pond in Lancaster.
We had 116 register. Over 40 NEMS registered swimmers plus many local college and age group swimmers. (2 separate swims, several waves)There was over $5K raised to support local USS swimmer Michelle Farnsworth in her battle against a rare cancer rhabdomyosarcoma RMS.
We had so much fun Saturday, WAM will aim to make this an annual event bringing our local swim community together - a reunion, great send off for college swimmers, and opportunity to raise money for a cause doing something we love.
Thank you for posting this event. We are happy to work with NEMS to make this even stronger next year.
