Whitworth Virtual Duck Race
Whitworth’s New Year’s Day Duck Race has become an egg-citing success and a popular event in the Whitworth calendar. Usually the ducks take to the water at the overflow of Cowm Reservoir on Tong End on new years day but in 2021, due to Coronavirus things will be a bit different with our first ever virtual race.
To restrict the use of cash we are offering the option to sponsor blocks of 5 ducks electronically. We will email you with the numbers of the ducks you have sponsored.
The Duck Race is organised jointly between Whitworth Town Council’s Tourism and Leisure Committee and CLAW (the Community Leisure Association of Whitworth), and all proceeds are ploughed back into tourism and leisure events for the town organised by the two organisations.
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. This year the numbers will be drawn by a random number generator. Results will be announced on facebook at 1pm on Friday 1st January and the winners will be contacted by telephone.
When: 1pm Friday 1st January 2021
