Thank you to all that participated in Shiver in the River in the first six years! We are looking forward to a bigger and better Shiver in the River in 2021, our 7th Anniversary of the event! With live music, beverages, food, heated tents and more, this is the Coolest Winter Festival in Richmond, and shows our love for Virginia!

2020 LEAP Year Stats

We had 442 people start the day off with the Community Cleanup, and they picked up 1,782 pounds of trash

451 pounds recycling. That’s over ONE TON of litter and recyclables that would have been left in the landscape, and most likely end up in the James River.

553 people register for the 5K run, and 211 people who braved the chilly weather to LEAP into the James River! The festival continued with food trucks, kids games, vendors who care about sustainability, terrific live music, and fun all around! It was a great Leap Day, and a huge success. We’re still accepting donations, and you can still earn incentives. We will post the results soon to reveal how much money we raised to support our programs and initiatives.

If you participated in the 5K race, you can find the posted results here. Thank you Richmond Road Runners Club for all your help with the race!

Thank you to our sponsors, vendors, and everyone who came out for our best Shiver in the River yet!

Thanks to our 2020 Sponsors!
