The popular DUCK WADDLE 5K kick starts the Estes Park Rotary Club's DUCK RACE FESTIVAL!
The DUCK WADDLE 5K course follows the very scenic Lake Estes Trail giving runners and walkers grand views of the mountain peaks along the Continental Divide. The family friendly race begins east of Estes Park Parking Structure following the Lake Estes Trail counterclockwise to the finish line (west of the Lake Front Parking area on north side of Lake Estes). The DUCK WADDLE 5K foot race welcomes all abilities and those wanting to have a ton of fun at the festival! Strollers and friendly pets welcomed!
Run with us and you will automatically adopt a rubber Duck to float down the beautiful Fall River. The DUCK RACE is a major fundraiser for charities in Estes Park. The Estes Park Running Club is one of those charity groups 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.
