In addition to entry to the event, each participant gets one beverage ticket for the after party. Racers start the event at 5 p.m. on a 5K trail, then grab an inflatable tube and paddle down the James River toward the finish line. Runners launch in about six waves, spaced apart by three to five minutes. Once everyone has dried off, the after party fills the area with live music, and food and beverage sales, including beer, begin. The after party goes until 9 p.m. The event is open to anyone aged 10 or older; racers 17 or younger must wear a life jacket. Proceeds go to the James River Association and its conservation efforts.
