Find your perch to get a great view along the quays or bridges and join in the excitement for the sprint finish! This great family-fun event is free to attend or you can truly get into the spirit of the race by sponsoring a duck for just €5.

Organised by the Lions Club, the ducks are racing for a very worthy cause with all funds going to local charities Kilkenny Cois Nore Cancer Support Centre and Kilkenny Sub-aqua club. Sponsor a duck to be in with a chance of winning a prize of €100; €75 or €25.
