26th Dec 2019

Location: Kenilworth

Time: 12:00 - 14:00

Every Boxing Day an unusual ritual takes place starting at the Ford in Kenilworth.

Cost: £1

At noon, after the events at the Castle, the Town Mayor helps to launch 1,500 defenceless little (fake!) ducklings into Finham Brook. After a bracing swim of 200 metres the ducks cross the finishing line in the town's Abbey Fields.

The first four finishers capture prizes of £100, £75, £50 and £25 respectively.

This is a great way to work off your Christmas meal, with a chance to win and help others at the same time by supporting the Kenilworth Lions charity.

Duck race tickets cost £1 each.
