Dominion Riverrock

This last weekend Richmond's Browns Island became home to Dominion outdoor sporting event that hosts a variety of outdoor competitions and exhibits.  There was mountain bike racing, kayak competitions, boulder climbing competitions, a 5K and a 10K and then there are the dogs.  The Ultimate Air Dogs to be exact.  And the races and exhibits aren't all that's offered...there is also music.  Great music by some great local bands.  And did I mention that you can just walk down to Brown's island and watch all this for free!  It's really is a pretty awesome event.  No wonder the crowds came out in such record numbers.  Go Richmond!

There are three footbridges to get you over to Brown's Island...they all
take you over the canal

Yes she really was holding her dog up so
he could see

This air dog didn't want to take off

I really liked these.  Stand up paddle boards

Just before the race

The Mighty James was really flowing!

This guy hit pavement about a minute after the
picture.  His body was ok but I think his pride was
a little sore.

If you live in Richmond or the surrounding area come check it out next year.  Bring the kids, bring the pooch and bring sunblock!  Great time to take in some of the beautiful Richmond scenery and check out some sporting action at the same time.
