Hungry Duck Races postponed to 2021

New Date: 7/4/2021

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we believe the safest course of action is to postpone our event to 2021. We regret this situation and appreciate your understanding. 

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to 2021, and look forward to having you join us next year. Thanks for your patience!

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to support hunger initiatives in Livingston County through Rotary. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at Hungry Duck in 2021.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

Half Marathon starts at 7:00am; 5K Run/Walk at 7:15am; Duckling Dash Kid's Run at 9:30am.

The course starts in downtown Brighton, continuing into local scenic areas and returning downtown to finish. Course is mostly paved with portions on hard-packed dirt roads; mostly flat with a few "modest" hills to add a little challenge. The half marathon course will be closed at 9:45am.

The race benefits our local non-profit partners in the fight against hunger!
