Kick Me In The Jimmy is a 6-hour adventure challenge based out of James River State Park near Gladstone Virginia. This is a great "Adventure Race" style virtual challenge that is perfect training for participants of all levels, even skilled kids. The whitewater is very mild so folks with limited experience will be able to safely navigate the class 1 rapids with a very low chance of going for a swim. The mountain biking trails are fun and flowy but do contain some challenging and technical sections with steep climbs, descents, roots and rock gardens.
Our unique virtual event model is a safe way to have an Adventure Racing experience without fear of contracting COVID 19. Head over to the "How it works" tab on our website to learn more and get a better idea of what to expect.
General Information from the JRSP Website
"Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the park features rolling grasslands, quiet forests and beautiful views, as well as 3 miles of shoreline along the James River. Visitors can hike, bike, canoe, kayak, fish or tent camp on the banks of the historic river or at Branch Pond. Facilities include cabins, a visitor center, a gift shop, a camp store, a natural playground, picnic shelters, multi-use trails, boat launches, water/electric campgrounds and equestrian camping. The park also has a universally accessible fishing pier and a .25-mile-long wheelchair accessible trail around Green Hill Pond. James River State Park Outdoor Adventures, a full-service canoe livery, provides canoe, kayak and tube rentals as well as shuttle services. For more information about the livery (open seasonally), call 434-933-8682. The park is also a great place to view the annual James River Batteau Festival. A replica of one of the unusual vessels is on display at the visitor center.
To lessen debris and its impact on wildlife, James River is a trash-in, trash-out facility. Guests will find trash collection sites at the canoe landing campground, near the cabin area entrance and by the park entrance."
