In addition to entry to the event on Saturday, July 26, each participant gets an event t-shirt and one beverage ticket for the after-party. Runners start the event at 2:30 p.m. on a 5K trail, then grab an inflatable tube and paddle down the James River toward the finish line. Participants launch in 15 different waves, and should arrive no later than 30 minutes before their wave time.
Runners are encouraged to invite a friend to join the after-party which includes live music and food and beverage sales from vendors such as Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and RVA Street Foodies. The after-party goes until 8 p.m. The event is open to anyone aged 10 or older; runners 17 or younger must wear a life jacket. Proceeds go to the James River Association and its conservation efforts.
