We are going virtual.

Due to Covid-19, T.e Great Auckland Duck Race this year is going VIRTUAL. Instead of cheering on your duck by the whitewater rapids at Vector Wero Whitewater Park, do it from the comfort of your couch.

How will it work?

On Sunday 24 October go to ‘The Great Auckland Duck Race’ Facebook page:

Watch all three races at the following times:

  • School Race: 10am
  • Business Race: 10.30am
  • Everybody Race: 11am
  • Prize-giving: 11.30am

Can I attend the event on the day?

Unfortunately not. Due to the uncertainty of which alert level Auckland will be in and attendee number restrictions we are unable to have the public there. 

Can I still buy a Business Duck?

Yes. However, Business ducks need to be returned by Thursday 7 October. This ensures we will be able to include your duck in the best dressed competition.
