Everybody loves an exciting race, whether it involves horses, hounds, motorized machinery … or ducks. Though no Aflac quack will punctuate the third annual Great Nashville Duck Race, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee nonetheless points to this wacky web-footed event each year to generate support for the organization’s 3,500 youths. And how could a Duckvillian, er, Nashvillian not love the free GNDR? The race concept is simple yet brilliant: At 1 p.m., about 10,000 rubber ducks ($5 to “adopt” a ducky) will be dropped from the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge to “race” downstream via the Cumberland River. The most athletic billed bird to reach the finish line first will win $10,000. Additional prizes include Nashville Superspeedway tix, free rounds at the Golf Club of Tennessee, an Oreck Halo vacuum cleaner, a free Music City Duck Tours tour, Nashville Predators tix, a hundred bucks-worth of SportClips haircuts and an Eastside Scooter helmet. What? No Donald Duck pajamas or Peabody Duck March video?
