The Anthem James River Splash & Dash in Lynchburg is a competitive tube race which took place on Percival's Island on August 3, 2013. Participants run an approximate 2 mile trail course; grab a tube, paddle (with their hands) down the James, and run to the finish line. After the race, there was an after party at The Depot Grille with music and food and beer sales! This event was a fundraiser for the James River Association.
