Drake Race

Welcome to the 18th year of Swindon’s Famous Drake Race 2018

The Drake Race for local businesses and organisations is on Monday Bank Holiday 28th May and runs just before the Duck Race It recognises local firms and organisations’ generous support of our event.

Yellow Drakes cost £50 or you can race a Golden Drake £100

The winner receives the coverted Rose Bowl to display at their premises for a whole year!  We are also keen to promote your business on our website with links to your business.

Through your sponsorship you and many other local organisations helped to take the amount raised, through this now very popular event for local charities, to over £220,000 since 2001.
Our main charity this year is Brighter Futures who will receive the major part of the funds raised at the Duck Race.  You can read more about their work here.  The remaining funds are being raised by and for other local Rotary Charities.  Thanks to sponsorship from Nationwide Building Society and McArthur Glen Designer Outlet every penny we raise is distributed to our charities.
