The Ware Duck Race
Returning for 2018!
After resting the event last year, we are delighted to confirm that The Great Ware Duck Race will be returning for 2018.
The event will be run by SPACE with support from Amwell Rotary Club.
SPACE are a Hertfordshire based charity supporting parent/carers of children and young people on the Autistic Spectrum, with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or a related condition. All proceeds from the event will go to SPACE.
The race will be run on Sunday July 8th in its usual location at Ware Lock. Time TBC.
Tickets priced at £2.00 each will be available to buy at Ware Carnival Fete on Saturday 7th July as well as at the event itself.
As part of the preparations, we have checked all of the ducks to confirm that they are race fit and ready ....
Below are a selection of photographs from various race years. Moving the cursor over any of the thumbnail images, or tapping them on a touch screen, will display a larger version.
Over the past thirty odd years this event has raised many thousands of pounds for local charities and we are very grateful to everyone who has supported us by buying a ticket or coming along to watch on the day.
To give you all just a small taste of the the spectacle and the excitement that is the Great Ware Duck Race, we have added a video of the 2016 race's thrilling start.
