Duck Race

A new date for our Duck Race, but still just as much fun!

Sign up here!

Our Duck Race is back later in the year than before, but there's still the same mix of fun and excitement - will your duck be the first to cross the line and win you a great prize!

The Corporate Duck Race takes to the water at 10.00am, so get there early to cheer on the giant ducks. Local businesses design and dress the ducks, and if it's anything like last year there will be some wild and wacky ducks making their way down the canal!


The Family Duck Race will start at 11.00am, when 2,000 individually numbered ducks will set off from the lock at Armentieres Square, Stalybridge. As always, there'll be plenty of laughs as they are helped along the way by members of a local canoeing club.


The first three to cross the finish line will win cash prizes of £100, £50 and £30, so it's well worth having a go!
You can back your duck to win for just £1.50, and there's no limit to how many ducks you can have in the race. Don't worry if you are unable to get there on the day, as we'll contact all winners by phone.
