Colorado Duck Race presented by Alpine Bank

Adopt a Duck and Race the Colorado River


The Colorado Duck Race is an event everyone can enjoy from the banks of the Colorado River. Adopted ducks take to the Colorado river in a mass start, mass fun race the length of Watson Island. Powered by luck and the currents of the river, which duck will come out the victor? Adopt one or many and cheer on all the racing ducks to their finish. Proceeds from the race benefit Mesa County Search and Rescue.


Will your adopted duck float past the river hazards, navigate the best currents, and eek out a win by a duck bill? Be there at the finish to witness all the drama and to cheer on your duck. The competition will be hot. Who will quack? Who will win?!

The Colorado Duck Race is presented by:
