The Black Country Duck Race!
This is exactly what you think. The Black Country Duck Race is a HUGE rubber duck race down the canal, finishing at the Tenth Lock Pub!
The pub will also be putting on a free family fun day, starting at 12pm on the day. The fund day is dog-friendly, so please come along with your furry friends. Please note that there is disabled access to the pub for the Duck Race event.
The rules are simple, we will have HUNDREDS of numbered, rubber ducks, which are just £3 each if you’d like to be in the race. We will chuck them into the canal and scream ourselves hoarse as they compete in the greatest race this area has ever known! First one to the finish line will receive the Mick Bailey Memorial Trophy and £100
We’d also like to say a huge thank you to Canalside Tackle for sponsoring this event, meaning that all of the money raised will be used to fund the care that we provide to our community.
Ducks are available to buy from either the form below, The Tenth Lock or Canalside Tackle, and any that are left will be available to sell on the day!
Our Corporate Duck race is kindly sponsored by Taylors Estate Agents
The Mary Stevens Hospice will provide and number all ducks ahead of the race.. there is no need to bring your own. Simply attend on the day to see if your duck makes it across the line first.
It’s going to be absolutely amazing, and we can’t wait to see you on Sunday 29th!Back to all events
