• Great Rubber Duck Race

The Summit Foundation Great Rubber Duck Race

Breckenridge Grand Vacations is proud to be the title sponsor of The Summit Foundation’s Annual Rubber Duck Races. This longstanding Summit County tradition has supported our community for more than three decades.  The races typically take place the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. The main event of the day, the Great Rubber Duck Race, featured over 10,000 adopted ducks vying to be number one as they raced down the Blue River through the heart of Breckenridge.

HOWEVER, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 Great Rubber Duck Races will be a VIRTUAL event.  There will be hundreds of prizes, including a $1,500 grand prize for the Great Rubber Duck Race, a VIP Cat Tour for 12 at Keystone Resort for the Business Battle Duck Race and great kids prizes for the Kids Duck Race.

Some have been asking “What exactly is a Virtual Duck Race??”  Great question!  For this year only, when you purchase a duck, your name will be entered into our duck racing simulator, affectionately known as the “Quack O’ Matic 3000”. Once all the names are entered, the Quack O’Matic 3000 will simulate all three Duck Races.  If your duck wins, you win!  With more than a hundred prizes, the odds are pretty good.  Deadline to purchase is Wednesday, September 2nd at Noon.  Buy a duck, make a difference!

Proceeds from rubber duck adoptions support scholarships and grants to critical community nonprofit organizations in Summit County and beyond.  For more information about The Summit Foundation’s Annual Rubber Duck Races, please visit The Summit Foundation.
