The 3rd Annual James River Paddle Challenge is featured again this year as part of the new event- the James River Association Riverfest.
Competitive paddlers may choose from either of two flatwater courses: a 4-mile Sprint Race into Powhatan Creek or a 9.5-mile Endurance Race around historic Jamestown Island. There will also be a 2-mile Fun Paddle open to anyone who just wants to be on the water but isn't up for competition.
After the race, enjoy food, vendors, and live music at the James Riverfest presented by the James River Association.
This race supports the James River Association's efforts
to protect and restore the watershed.
