So why not register now and secure your own rubber duck to take part in this charity race?  The ducks are all thrown into the Limmat at the same time then have to “swim’ along a one kilometre stretch of the river to Platzspitzpark, which should take around twenty minutes or so. There are great prizes for the winning ducks and fun for all the spectators and participants.

There is also a duck “beauty contest” for the most beautifully decorated ducks too!

Ducks are available for a donation of just CHF 10 each and as well as purchasing a single duck there are also “duck couples”, 6 packs of ducks and even an “Armada” of 100 ducks available ! You can buy your ducks and register for the race here.
