Get ready for a bit of splashing and dashing

You must do both not just splashing or dashing by itself.

On Saturday, July 11, Richmonders will once again take to the James River for the 5th Annual James River Splash & Dash, sponsored by Riverside Outfitters. The event, a fundraiser for the James River Association, features a one-of-a-kind 5k trail run on Belle Isle followed by an inner tube race across the James ending at Historic Tredegar.

Racers should be ready to have fun, get wet, and navigate an uneven trail with obstacles of all kinds, including rocks, roots, and mud. An after party at the finish line includes live music from Kiss Me James and Sturgeon City, beverages from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, and food from RVA Street Foodies featuring Richmond’s best food trucks.

Racers age 10 and up are encouraged to participate. Registration is $40 per person, which includes an event t-shirt and beverage ticket.

To register for the event or to learn more about the James River Splash & Dash, sponsored by Riverside Outfitters, visit by Wednesday, July 8th.
