Dominion Riverrock: The Ultimate Athlete Challenge



    The Dominion Riverrock is a Who's Who of athleticism and a doggone good time... because, yes, dogs will also be competing in this outdoor event.

    Located in Richmond, Va., on Browns Island, this three-day festival runs May 18-20, uniting spectators, dogs and athletes for a chance to compete in -- or watch -- events such as the Ultimate Air Dog Championships (longest dog jump wins) and the Kayak Boatercross. No, it's not quite Motocross, but it's quite the sight to see kayakers struggling to win against the rapids of the James River. 
    Other events -- more than 15 take place during the weekend -- include a 10K trail run and a mountain bike race. You can register for any of them from now until the day of the events.
    Music is also a huge part of this festival, with 20+ bands will be performing free. The Traveling McCourys and JJ Grey are among the more notable names. See the complete lineup here.
