Sun May 16, 2021

Henrico, VA 23231 US Directions

New Start Location, Dorey Park

2021 Adventure Race

9:00AM EDT

Test your abilities as you navigate through RVA!

This adventure race is a multi-sport event that will test not only your speed, but also your capacity to work as a team, read a map & compass, make the right decisions, & endure on a course designed by Central Virginia Orienteering Club. Plan to spend 4 hours riding, running, & paddling, from an undisclosed start line to the finish line in the middle of Dominion Energy Riverrock!

All teams will be racing against the clock & trying to maximize check-points found before the finish time.  Teams will also be separated into divisions & racing against each other…i.e. “2-person co-ed, 3 or 4 person male, 3 or 4 person co-ed, etc”.  You can race to be “top dog” overall & also race to humble the other teams in your division.  The more teams there are, the more fun it is. If you want to race solo please e-mail

Help Us Maintain Our World Class Trail System

The James River Park System & the Richmond Riverfront is an extremely important asset to Richmond. Please consider a donation to benefit the James River Park System & Richmond Riverfront. Your gift will help maintain, improve & enhance the James River Park System trails & riverfront. This nationally acclaimed trail system would not be what it is today without the hard work of countless volunteers throughout the year & it is donations like yours that make this work possible. 2019 Dominion Energy Riverrock donations supported two important projects taking place in our Park System & around our Riverfront: rehabbing the Maymont ramp on the North Bank Trail by the James River Park System staff (completed November 2019) & a universal access ramp at Huguenot Flatwater through the James River Outdoor Coalition’s efforts.


Dominion Energy Riverrock, organized by Richmond non-profits Sports Backers & Venture Richmond, began in 2009 & is now the nation's premier outdoor sports & lifestyle festival, bringing athletes, spectators, musicians, & even dogs to Brown’s Island & Historic Tredegar for a three-day festival against the backdrop of downtown Richmond’s urban riverfront. The festival was designed to promote Richmond’s unique riverfront, downtown trails & whitewater rapids to outdoor enthusiasts. As a result of the creation of Dominion Riverrock, there is a stronger appreciation for the value of outdoor recreation throughout the entire Richmond region.
