RACE RULES: The main race begins when approximately 3,000 rubber ducks are dumped into the Chagrin River. The first duck to cross the finish line will win $1000.00, second duck $500.00 and third duck a gift basket.
Each duck is the same exact size, color and weight. Approximately 3,000 rubber ducks participate in the race. The number on your Duck Adoption Certificate corresponds with the number on the bottom of the rubber duck entered into the race. The decision of the winning duck is up to the sole discretion of the Aqua Doc staff and is final. Winners must be 18 years of age or older and do not need to be present to win. Winners are contacted via email, following the races. Corresponding Duck Adoption Certificate may be required as verification before prizes are awarded.
