Shiver in the River 2018!

Saturday, February 24, 2018

Benefiting KEEP VIRGINIA BEAUTIFUL INC.

Shiver in the River is the coolest winter festival in RVA!  You can clean up, walk/run, or jump in the James River — or do all three!  You and your family can participate in as much or as little as you want, and you can form teams challenging your family, friends and co-workers.

10:00 a.m. Community Cleanup 
Shiver in the River will start with a cleanup along the banks of the James River and in the RVA communities. Picking up litter and recyclables is at the very heart of Keep Virginia Beautiful.  The cleanup is free, and you can earn incentives by creating a fundraising page.

12:00 Noon 5K Walk/Run
The 5K Walk/Run is a fun event for the whole family that will start and end at Historic Tredegar, and take in the beauty of the James River.  Online registration ends on Thursday, February 22nd, but walk up registration will be available at packet pickup on Friday, February 23rd, and on the day of the event.  When you create a fundraising page, your registration fee counts toward your incentive awards. Short sleeve T-shirts are included in the 5K registration.  Please note, race registration fees are not refundable.

2:00 p.m. The James River Jump
The highlight of Shiver in the River is the James River Jump!  This fundraising Jump will take place along the chilly banks of the James near Historic Tredegar. A minimum of $75 must be raised to participate in the Jump and to receive a commemorative long sleeve T-shirt.  Online registration ends on Thursday, February 22nd, but walk up registration will be available at packet pickup on Friday, February 23rd, and on the day of the event.

11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Winter Festival!
There will be music, beverages, food, and more!

The VMA is a proud partner of this event, so come join us for the Coolest Winter Festival in Richmond!
