In 1983, a crowd of nervous little yellow chaps gathered in Holmfirth. Little did they know that they would be starting a tradition that would be recognised and, dare we say, beloved by people the world over.
That’s right folks; it’s time again for the Holmfirth Duck Race!
After last years successful event we thought we'd give this whole race thing another go and subject ourselves to another year of the yellow racing phenomenon.
This years event will be held on Sunday 2nd July 2017 (The event is always held on the first Sunday in July), what can we say it's a bit of local tradition!
As always, it’d be great if you could join us, follow us on Facebook or purchase individual or corporate tickets. With all the excitement these little guys will need as much encouragement as they can get.
Our street teams will be out and about a few weeks prior to the event selling tickets and taking Quackers the fluffy duck for his morning walk. They’d love your encouragement too.
Good luck to all of our quackers and backers!
