The iconic Northwich Duck Race will return in 2024
With 2,000 ducks dropped into the river dane, the first three past the post will win a prize. Don’t worry though, all ducks are collected from the river Dane just before they reach the Weaver – as they’re numbered we count them all back in to make sure none are missed.
Once you’ve made the purchase below you’ll receive an email with your duck numbers, keep this safe and make sure you enter the correct contact information during payment.
