The quack on the white water is, that The Great Auckland Duck Race will be exciting family fun in dramatic surroundings that few city-slicker ducks have ever encountered.

The first quazy race in 2016 was a quacker and in 2017, we can't wait to set the rubber duckies free on the race of their lives – all for raising funds to help local children to make great health & nutrition choices with the help of Life Education & other local community projects.

This unique event is sponsored by Ray White Manurewa, Takanini and Remuera and brought to Auckland in collaboration with Rotary Clubs of Manurewa-Takanini and Remuera and Second Nature Charitable Trust.

With four high energy & exciting races, everybody has the opportunity to take part:

9.15am – Ray White Race - Ray White offices & friends competing against each other
10.00am – School Race - any school who wishes to take part will be given a FREE duck
10.45am – Business Race - ducks available to buy before the event for $250 (inc GST and p&p)
11.30am – Everybody Race - 5,000 little yellow numbered ducks will be let loose at the same time! Everybody can buy a $5 ticket per duck to race.
- on the day, bring your Eventfinda ticket to the The Great Auckland Duck Race and you'll be issued with your lucky ducky number

Ducks in the first three races are encouraged to be dressed-up by their owners - last year we had Donald Trump, a biker, a prisoner, a fairy and many more spectacular looking ducks....the sky is the limit as to what you can create!!!

The Best-Dressed Duck Competitions will be held on the event's Facebook page: The Great Auckland Duck Race

With amazing prizes for the Best-Dressed ducks & winners of every race, The Great Auckland Duck Race is a fun event for all the family & community to take part in & be in to win!
