Shiver in the River | RVA’s Coolest Winter Festival
February 29, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Choose Your Challenge!
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.
Community Cleanup | Shiver in the River will start with a cleanup along the banks of the James River and in communities throughout RVA. Picking up litter and recyclables is at the very heart of Keep Virginia Beautiful’s mission.
5K Walk/Run | Enjoy the beauty of the James River with a bit of exercise. Our improved route for the 5K is a single loop that includes the views of downtown, natural areas and crosses the new Potterfield Memorial Bridge.
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. Participants must raise a minimum of $75.
We are looking forward to a bigger and better Shiver in the River in 2020, our 6th Anniversary of the event! With live music, beverages, food, heated tents and more, this is the Coolest Winter Festival in Richmond, and shows our love for Virginia!
