This spring time foot race kick-starts the Estes Park Rotary Club’s DUCK RACE FESTIVAL!  

The DUCK WADDLE 5K race begins at east side of Bond Park at Elkhorn Avenue.  Each runner and walker will follow the scenic Fall River path and return along Wonder View to Town Hall/ Bond Park  finish line. The DUCK WADDLE 5K foot race welcomes all abilities and those wanting to have a ton of fun at the festival!  Following the race, live music and festivities are held at Riverside Plaza.

At 1:00pm is the rubber  DUCK RACE, starting at Nicky’s Restaurant on Fall River and finishing at Riverside Plaza.

Run with us and you will automatically adopt a rubber Duck to float down the Fall River. The DUCK RACE  is a major fundraiser for 67 charities in Estes Park.  With each Duck adoption, $19 will go towards a local charity of your choice.  The Estes Park Running Club is one of those charity groups, #32 on the adoption form. Selecting the Estes Park Running Club will allow our group to receive funding and ability to disperse to local youth programs in Estes Park.   You don’t have to RUN, to purchase a DUCK racer, use link below. 

 

Join the fun and help make a difference for many charities in Estes Park, Colorado!

Due to the COVID19 pandemic and the uncertainties regarding safety, we are sadly canceling the 2020 Estes Park Marathon & Half Marathon races. 

We hope you and your loved ones continue to remain safe and COVID19 free as Colorado, and the rest of the USA, begins to open businesses. Through this process, our team respects the need for social distancing and the successes of ‘Safer at Home’ guidance provided by health officials. While our races are outdoors, they require a significant amount of resources to make it safe for your participation. As an alternative, we considered many scenarios for postponing our races, but with current uncertainties there is too much at risk. Sadly, we are canceling the 2020 in-person Estes Park Marathon & Half Marathon races. As a result, it is our hope that our community will remain protected and healthy. We wish the same for your community, too!

For the love of running, we are offering heartfelt motivation options by going virtual. We understand there is no substitution for our exceptionally scenic courses, but please consider that you’re now training for 2021.  : )  We want to stay motivated alongside you and plan to keep on running!  Chin up and let’s do this!
