Duck Race

Five thousand little yellow ducks have been flexing their wings and putting in the hard yards ahead of The Great Tauranga Duck Race, an annual fundraising event for local Surf Life Saving Clubs and Rotary Charitable Activities.

On Sunday, April 15 these specially-numbered rubber ducks will be launched from the waterfront on The Strand to vie for the finish line.

Join the action and you could be in to win - there are three options to choose from: General Duck Race, Corporate Race and Zachary Quack Schools Duck Race.

General Duck Race is a good time for the whole family. Just "adopt" a duck for only $5. Adopt one for the whole family or one each.

Corporate Duck Race is for the office. Get the whole office behind this event by buying a larger duck for $200. Naked ducks will be available six weeks prior to the race for you to dress your duck in your corporate colours.

The Zachary Quack Schools Duck Race is for each school in Tauranga and the Western Bay, which will be offered a free duck for the Zachary Quack race.

There are many great prizes to be won in the General Duck race, such as $1000 for first place in the General Duck Race and plenty of spot prizes.
