Totnes Duck Race

Held every year as part of Totnes Carnival week thousands of plastic ducks make their way down the River Dart from the Brutus bridge to the old town bridge. The fastest ducks win prizes for their owners.

This year the event will take place on Saturday 18 August. Tickets will be on sale in the town two weeks before. We invite local charities to become involved in the event by selling tickets and sharing the proceeds. If your charity would like to be involved, please contact us.

Totnes Raft Race

The Totnes Raft Race will be held on Sunday 30th September 2018
It takes place along the river Dart starting at Dart Bridge, Buckfastleigh, and on through a mixture of white water, fast flowing weirs and calm stretches, and makes its way down to the finish in Totnes, a distance of some 13 Kilometres.

This is acknowledged as one of the great river challenges and last year, 2017 saw 46 rafts entered.
This is an ideal corporate or group team building exercise.
