All of you peasants, serfs and farmers need to register before I raise the tax collections (entry fee). Prices are going up to $45 Friday at mid night . Unless you want to pay the extra shillings day of the race, you better get on it.

The King is coming! After a year of crusading and pillaging in far off lands, the King has returned and is ready to celebrate his spoils.

Join us for the third, somewhat annual, ‘King of the James’ adventure triathlon. This event will traverse the James River’s mountain-esque terrain through the city of Richmond. Individuals and teams will battle it out as they run the Forest Hill Trail loop, mountain bike Buttermilk and North Bank Trails, and paddle the urban whitewater found deep in the heart of the city’s fall line. In the end, there can only be one, King of the James.

‘King of the James’ is an individual, multi-sport event.  You must be able to complete the course by possessing the skills of an EXPERIENCED trail runner, EXPERIENCED mountain biker, and EXPERIENCED whitewater kayaker.  This is an extremely difficult course, with many hazards, and requires stamina as well as in-depth knowledge of all three sports.  The course is subject to a variety of changing variables associated with being held in an ever changing outdoor environment.  Please take this into consideration.  If there is any question on your part, about completing any of the disciplines, please do not attempt ‘King of the James’.  DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE the difficulty of the ‘King of the James’.

***REMEMBER!  YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY AT THE ‘KING OF THE JAMES’.  IF YOU SEE ANOTHER IN NEED OF HELP, PLEASE HELP!!!***

‘King of the James’ will be held on an open course, meaning there will be other park ‘users’ found on the trails, roads, and descending the falls of the James River.  Please yield to these pedestrians.  There will also be times where participants of the ‘King of the James’ will ride/run portions of the course on open roads.  Follow the rules of the road and yield to moving vehicles.

Participants are responsible for their own safety.  Please carry the safety equipment necessary to be in the outdoors for many hours.  Carrying a cell phone is recommended.

We recognize that having the skill set to participate in all three disciplines is extremely challenging and ‘King of the James’ will accept teams banding together in order to complete the race.  If your interest is to participate as an individual on a team, you must put together your own team.
