Tadcaster Duck Race

Tadcaster Duck Race will take place on Saturday 26th September. There will be stalls and games from 12 - 4pm and the Ducks will be launched from the Viaduct at 2pm. The ducks will race along the River Wharfe to the finish line at Tadcaster Bridge. 

Ducks (tickets) can be purchased for £1 at Tadcaster Swimming Pool. First prize is £100, Second Prize is £50 and Third Prize is £25.

Businesses can get involved by purchasing a corporate duck for £20. These larger, colourful ducks will race alongside the normal ducks and will have numbers to represent your business. The race will also be commentated on by Adam Tomlinson from Radio York along with Clare Frisby from BBC Look North. The first Business Duck past the finishing line will win 1 Years free advertising at Tadcaster Swimming Pool. 

This Years race will be started by Emmerdales Cain Dingle and the winner of the schools painting competition.
