The 31st annual Boulder Duck Race was a huge success this year, with over 7,000 community members participating in a great cause. Thousands of rubber ducks are poured into Boulder Creek where they “race” down the Creek. Proceeds for the yearly cause goes to the PLAY Boulder Foundation. This includes Boulder Reservoir, EXPAND, PLAYpass, Tree Trust, and YSI.

The event gives community members and businesses the opportunity to adopt a racing duck for as little as $10 up to $500. The event also features prizes for the winning ducks and the most creative ducks.

Congratulations to the 2019 Duck Race Winners:

1st Place, $1,000 -Sarah Wolf

2nd Place, $750 – Brian Cortez

3rd Place, $500 – Philip Goodwin
