About The Hebden Bridge Duck Race 2018
The Hebden Bridge Duck Race is back for 2018! The event attracts thousands of visitors, from near & far. This is not just a Duck Race. Throughout the day there will be a variety of entertainment, including children's rides, charity stalls and music. It's a fun day out for all the family.

The Duck Race starts at approximately 3.15pm when the ducks are all launched at the same time into the river from St George's Bridge. Up to 10,000 individually numbered yellow ducks will race down Hebden Water to the finish line at West End bridge. Tickets for the Duck Race cost £1 each, available on-line and from numerous shops and pubs in the town, displaying brightly coloured posters, and from the Visitor Centre besides the Marina. Tickets will also be on sale from the Rotary stall in St Georges Square on several weekends before Easter and on Easter Monday. Each £1 race ticket includeds a £25 Jet2Holidays voucher to be used at The Travel Centre.
Alongside the duck race, there is a Business Duck race, starting before the main race at 3.00pm, principally aimed at local businesses and organisations. Any organisation or individual can buy a green, red, or blue duck, at a cost of £10 per duck.
All profits from the Duck Race, and other club events, are distributed to local and national charities.
