Annual Giant Duck Race

Run by The Rotary Club of Ramsbottom The Shoulder of Mutton, Holcombe, Ramsbottom, Bury, Lancashire Poster for Giant Duck Race 2016to raise money for local charities. Part of a day of events on the River Irwell in Ramsbottom.
One of the events is the Giant Duck Race.
Local business & many of the other pubs in Ramsbottom as well as youth organisations enter a duck that they decorate to be entered into the Best Dressed Duck competition.

Our entry this year looked great even if we say so ourselves.

However the race was a little disappointing, we had a great start & led on a couple of occasions but we fell foul to some encouragement that some of our competitors needed in order to get going.The Shoulder of Mutton, Holcombe, Ramsbottom, Bury, Lancashire, Giant Duck

Our valiant duck was then tipped & continued having suffered a most unfair turn of events.

Making a late charge for the line  our duck was in an epic battle for last place, unfortunately the photo technology on the finish line malfunction, so we are going with an honourable draw (ish).

2017 Duck Race

With a new lick of paint we entered our duck again this year! We managed mid-table mediocrity which was a significant improvement on last years performance. You can see the whole event here on our Facebook page but you might not want to bother!

There was some talk from Rammy Rotary that no body had ever tried to enter a motorised duck before…… watch this space! Might even try a rocket!
