The event is organised and run by Break, a charity which supports vulnerable young people.
A spokesperson for Break said: “We are delighted that so many companies are as excited as we are about the fourth Grand Norwich Duck Race.
“We couldn’t do this without the support of The Ribs of Beef and The Canoe Man and we are really looking forward to some quacking duck racing.”
Companies can sponsor and decorate a corporate duck for £100, while individuals can sponsor a smaller duck for £2.
Events begin at 2pm with cake, food stalls and music by the water.
The corporate race will take place at 3pm, with the individual race at 4pm.
