River Run in Kibler


The Kibler Valley River Run will be held on July 28, 2018, on the Dan River near Claudville, VA.  This will be the 36th Annual running of the event.

 This competitive event is sponsored and operated by the Red Bank Ruritan Club on Red Bank School Road, Claudville, VA and includes various canoe and kayak events.

 Rustic camping is available for participants.  All participants receive a commemorative T-Shirt for this year’s event.  T-Shirts will be sold also to the general public.  This is an excellent event for water sports fans and photographers.

 Patrick County Tourism is a sponsor and we say, come to Patrick County and “Experience the Simple Life.”  Also, many businesses are sponsors for this event and we greatly appreciate their support and specially thank the landowners and volunteers.  Further, we thank the Pinnacles Hydro Plant and City of Danville for providing the water flow.
