Friends of Dragon Run (FODR) would like to welcome you to one of the most beautiful rivers in Virginia. We are dedicated to preserving this waterway and believe one of the best ways to do that is to show people how special it is by offering paddle trips.
Friends of Dragon Run’s fall paddle season will begin on Friday, October 16th and will end Sunday, November 1st. We will paddle October 16th, 17th (2 Paddles), 18th, 19th, 20th, 23rd, 24th (2 paddles), 25th, 26th, 27th, 30th, 31st (2 paddles) and November 1st. We will offer trips every day, weather permitting, by reservation only. Registration is currently open using a SignUp Genius link on the website www.dragonrun.org. Details about the paddle trips are displayed on the website by clicking on the Paddle Trip Info button. Donations must be made at the time of reservation. The suggested amount is $50 per person. Without a donation, you may still paddle but not with an advance reservation. Refunds will be offered if FODR has to cancel the paddle due to weather or if a paddler guest is ill. We provide a kayak for each paddler, a paddle, and life vest. We do not allow guests to bring their own boats. As with our first-ever summer paddle, we will follow strict COVID-19 guidelines.
