Shiver in the River

February 28 - 29

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.
