How Do My Ducks Get in the Water?


Let’s Tag! A few days prior to the Duck Race, volunteers will place numbered tags on the bottom of every duck that will be in the Race - which is 5,000! The tags are waterproof labels beginning with a 7 digit number and ending with a 7 digit number.

For Example: 8493001-8498000

How Does it Work?

Everyone who adopts a duck, whether online, in the mail, at a Duck Race booth or in a sponsoring business is entered into what we call E-Quack, a database that stores all of the information. Next to your name in E-Quack is the number of ducks you have adopted. The tag range is entered into E-Quack and all the numbers are shuffled up. Then, E-Quack automatically assigns the number of ducks you have adopted next to Tag Numbers. Thus, if you adopted 5 ducks, your name will be placed next to 5 different Tag Numbers.

Who Does the Gwinnett Duck Race Benefit?

Proceeds from the Duck Race will go to benefit the Rotary Club of Sugarloaf a non-profit organization to support their mission of service to others. Please visit the Rotary Club of Sugarloaf website for more information about our organization.

What if You Have 4,000 Adopted Ducks But You Have 5,000 Tagged Ducks on Duck Race Day?

If all our ducks have not been adopted by Duck Race day, it means that a lucky adopter can still adopt up to an hour prior to the Duck Race. Their names will be placed at random into the mix, next to a number that does not already have a name by it. Anyone can adopt until an hour before the race begins, as long as the race is not sold out.

What Time is the Gwinnett Duck Race?

All kinds of family fun will start at 3:00 pm on Saturday, August 3, 2019, including face painting, food vendors, and kids activities. The ducks will be dropped from a slide into the pool lazy river and begin racing at 4:00. The first three ducks through the finish line win the race!

How Will I Know if my Duck Wins?

The Rotary Club of Sugarloaf will contact you using the information you provided with your duck adoption. You do not need to be present to win.

Are They Real Ducks or Rubber Ducks?

Rubber ducks, silly!

Once I Adopt a Duck, Do I Get to Keep It?

No. After you adopt your duck, the Rotary Club of Sugarloaf will work hard to train, coach, and make sure each one is ready for Duck Race Day. After the race, all of the ducks will fly off to their next race somewhere in the U.S.

Do I Need to be Present to Win?

No, the winner does not need to be present to win. We do hope you will join us for the festivities though!

Is There an Admission Fee for the Gwinnett Duck Race?

No, the Duck Race is open to the public and is held at the West Gwinnett Park Aquatic Center at 4488 Peachtree Industrial Blvd, Norcross, GA 30071.
