Considering the current polar weather we’re experience, it seems a perfect time to remind everyone that Richmond’s favorite polar plunge is approaching fast! The Shiver in the River at Historic Tredegar (put on by our friends at Keep Virginia Beautiful) is scheduled for Saturday, January 28th. This winter there will be three components: a Community Cleanup, a 5K Run/Walk, and the James River Jump (i.e. plunging into the freezing-a$$ James).

Starting at 10 a.m. with a community cleanup along the banks of the James, surrounding areas and neighborhoods, participants will give an hour of their time to improve RVA’s communities. Following the cleanup, is the 5K at noon, where all ages will be able to run or walk while enjoying the beauty of the river area.  This will be the first 5K in Richmond history to cross the new T. Tyler Potterfield Memorial Bridge.  The event will continue with the James River Jump at 2 pm for those daring enough to enter the chilly river. But don’t worry if swimming in 38-degree water isn’t for you, Shiver In The River attendees will celebrate in the Winter Festival with heated tents, food & beverage trucks, and entertainment in an environmentally friendly atmosphere. Registration and details can be found by clicking here.
