Beginning May 18, 2012 and extending through May 20, 2012, Richmond’s riverfront, trails, and rapids will be hosting outdoor enthusiasts with a three day festival for canines and humans featuring a variety of outdoor sports. There are trail running events, kayaking, dog jumping, stand up paddle boarding, biking, and even climbing/bouldering events. This is the East Coast’s premier outdoor event designed to attract athletes, spectators, musicians, and dogs to the James River riverfront at Brown’s Island and at Historic Tredegar.
Ultimate Air Dogs is open to novice jumpers as well as experienced high flyers – from small to large. Your dog wants to be a star!
Bring your camera and catch the pro’s on the freestyle bike course! Some of the best in the nation will be there.
Ever try a 5K Mud Run? Riverrock starts with one, including obstacles and mud pits to get to the finish line. I’d wear old running shoes if I were you! Speaking of old shoes – this is a green event and there will be volunteers ready, willing, and able to take those old running shoes off your hands for recycling.
Richmond’s premier bed and breakfast is located less than a mile from the event and is the closest B&B to Tredegar and Brown’s Island. It may be too late this time to get reservations for a guest room but make plans for next year. You’ll be treated to a hearty gourmet breakfast that will stick to your ribs well into the afternoon!
