Bridgnorth Duck Race 2024 - Its Back With A Quack!

26th May 3:30 (Carnival Day)

Its back with a bang (or is that a quack?).

This years Duck Race will prove to be a spectacle like no other.

Imagine the scene, over 1200 miniature toy ducks serenely floating down the river, with yours, (yes, yours!) in the lead scooping the grand prize!

And its all happening on 26th May, after the Carnival.

On the day, Lenny The Bridgnorth Lion will be around to help the kids choose their winning duck, and there will be plenty to keep everyone entertained on the Quayside in Low Town before the race.

This year we're aiming for record Duck Sales, so we have secured the support of lots of local Retailers to help sell our ducks. 

Most importantly all the proceeds from the sales goes directly to Bridgnorth Lions Club to support local good causes.

Ducks are now on sale, click below to for a list of our wonderful local Retailers.

Important Changes To Bridgnorth Junior & Family Walks

As part of our aim to offer a bigger and better Bridgnorth Walk and Marathon, we have made an important change to this years Junior and Family Walks.

Both of these events will now start from Cleobury North Village Hall. You can find the location on Google Maps, or using OS Reference East 362318 North 286802 or the What3Words address backup.crockery.nuance.

This puts us in a great place to not only offer improved parking and access, but better facilities to race goers, and more choice for parents and spectators. This is the first step in our long term commitment to grow both the Junior and Family Walk events year on year.

Now the important stuff. The route itself continues largely as in previous years and importantly the kids get to go up Brown Clee which as we all know is a great feature of the Junior event (Red & Blue Stages below).

The Family Walk Route avoids any steep inclines and is on tarmac roads – ideal for pushchairs! (Red Only Stage)

Cleo Walk Route Marked Up Very Small

Even before we launched our new improved events, we were seeing record numbers of people signing up, so don’t delay book your place today at

Welcome Our Guinness World Record Holder

2024 sees the Lions teaming up with Hope House and Stephen Buttler, Multi World Record Holder, to raise funds and awareness for the local Shropshire Children’s Hospice.

Stephen will be competing in the Walk with the added difficulty of carrying a 3 stone weight on his back for the whole 22 mile course.

Easy Ways To Fundraise

The Bridgnorth Walk is all about raising money for good causes.

Entering is a great opportunity to raise sponsorship for the charity of your choice.

You can either organise your own fundraising perhaps with Work Colleages or your Local Pub or Club.

Maybe do it as a family, by simply downloading the Bridgnorth Lions Sponsor Form from the Walk Website.

Or even donate directly to your local Bridgnorth Lions Club, using our Just Giving Page.

An estimated £80,000 was raised in 2023 alone. So this year, help others by ‘Being Your Own Champion’.


Since 1976

Bridgnorth Lions

Have been serving our local community.

You will have seen or heard our name around the town and district already, but do you know who we are and what we do?

Bridgnorth Lions Club is made up of a group of like-minded men and exists to help those in the community who are disadvantaged or in need of help. Since 1976 we have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds, all from around Bridgnorth and the surrounding area, and every penny has been used to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

Forthcoming Events

Bridgnorth Lions Walk & Marathon 2024

Yes, its Back!

Our mammoth Lions Walk and Marathon will take place on Monday 6th May.

As in previous years, it offers the lofty challenge of Brown Clee, with a full Marathon and Walk for those serious athletes, as well as the rather more relaxed Cleobury North Family Walk.

And don't forget the Junior Walk, something to keep the kids busy……

Last year’s event raised an estimated £80,000 for good causes locally, regionally and nationally. So as well as having a really fun time, everyone helped support their local community.

We’d also like to thank last year's sponsors, who help make sure we can continue to provide this unique local event. If you’re a local business looking for a very cost effective way of raising your profile on the busiest day in Bridgnorth, just drop us a line.

So dust off your trainers and get a few miles under your belt. And keep watching this space for the latest updates or visit our Facebook page.

Bridgnorth Duck Race 2024 Sunday 26th May

Nice Weather For Ducks? It will be……..

Join us to the most fun event of the year, the Bridgnorth Duck Race. Watch in awe as thousands of our little friends drifty serenely down the River Severn.

Held the same day as Bridgnorth Carnival, the Duck Race provides a fitting end to a fun family day out.

Simply buy your duck in advance from one of the many retailers in town, or on the day at The Slipway in Severn Park or on the Quayside opposite Ridley’s on the bridge.

As well as ducks, there will be plenty of things to entertain the kids (and adults alike), while they wait for the big moment.

So for just £3.00, you can take your place in history, as one of the many who watched their shiny yellow buddy drift off into oblivion.
