Engines out for intrepid duck racers
ORGANISERS are urging people to turn up to a duck race in Nairn on non-motorised wheeled transport.
CLIC Sargent is hosting a duck race on the River Nairn next month and to make to most of the paths around the river they are urging people to take part in a three-mile walk on unusual wheeled items such as skateboards and decorated buggies.
Already a number of unicyclists from Nairn Academy have confirmed they will be attending the event at Lochloy Park on April 25.
Peter Logie, CLIC Sargent’s community fundraising manager for Highlands and Islands and Moray said: “It is not a race and we are not after bikes so much as more unusual wheeled items, although small children on small trikes and bikes would be welcome. We would encourage folk to be sponsored.”
Ducks can be purchased from the two Co-op stores in Nairn, from Occasions, High Street, Nairn or on the day at Lochloy Park.
The event starts at noon from Lochloy Park with registration opening at 11am. The duck race will start at 2pm.
It costs £5 to register and each participant who raises more £50 will receive a t-shirt, with the highest fundraiser winning a voucher from Bike and Buggy, Leopold Street, Nairn. There will also be prizes for the most unusual set of wheels and best fancy dress
