Design your Duck
The website takes you ‘down on the farm’, where you’ll meet four web-footed design specialists each of whom will provide hints and tips to help you to build a ‘race-winning’ duck. You have 100 bills to spend and the aim is to allocate this money between the four design features in such a way that you achieve the ideal combination of stability, intelligence, speed and power which will enable your duck to successfully negotiate the tricky stretch of river that hosts The Great Duck Race 2012. Tips and Strategies
You can also read the respected and independent newspaper, the ‘Duck Racing Post’. The current edition contains a special supplement: ‘How to win The Great Duck Race 2012’which provides additional information to help you in your quest to build the perfect racing duck, including an interview with last year’s race winner.
Enter the Race
When you are happy with its design, you enter your duck for the race. Be careful, because there is no going back once you have made the ‘Enter Duck’ decision. The duck’s name and features will be displayed on the website as a ‘Top Trumps’ style card for you to bring with you on race night. Gala Evening
The Great Duck Race 2012 will take place at the awards ceremony on Thursday 8 November, bringing the gala dinner to a fun-filled conclusion. The race will be shown on the big screen with a real-time leader board, so you can cheer on your favourites and track the progress of the ducks at the front of the field. Live race commentary will be provided by Alan Dedicoat. Winner Takes All
The winner of the Great Duck Race 2012 will receive a trophy and invited to name their favourite charity to which Unicorn Training will donate £500.
Good luck, book your place at the gala evening and get quacking!
