Duck race delight.
The event, organised by the Durham University Charities Kommittee (Duck), and sponsored by Northumbrian Water, begins at Elvet Bridge, in Durham, at 1pm on November 19.
This annual race promises to be bigger and better than ever, with up to 20,000 plastic ducks being sponsored in the competition, which stretches from Elvet Bridge to Kingsgate Bridge in the city.
The owner of the winning duck will be presented with pounds 1,000.
Tickets, costing pounds 1 to sponsor one duck, are now available from the Durham Tourist Information Centre.
