Annual New Year's Day Duck Race
Ready, steady – quack! A staple in the Whitworth calendar is the Annual New Year’s Day Duck Race. Taking place, every year at 1pm on New Year's Day at Cowm Reservoir. For those unfamiliar with the concept, numbered ducks sponsored for a pound are entered into the Duck Race, and those who have sponsored the numbers of the first three ducks (and the last one) over the line get a cash prize. The sponsor of the first duck over the line will win £100, with second and third prizes of £75 and £50 respectively, and a tenner for the last duck to waddle in. The Duck Race is organised by Whitworth Town Council’s Tourism and Leisure Committee and all proceeds are ploughed back into tourism and leisure events for the town. Last year the duck race raised over a thousand pounds to be used for the Whitworth community.
