Do you have a dachshund with a need for speed and a nose for the finish line? Sign up for the tenth annual Running of the Wieners race, a precursor to Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati 2016. Registration fee includes all race competition gear, hot dog bun costume and owner t-shirt. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to local charities benefitting animals.
Dogs, outfitted in their provided hot dog bun costumes, will run in heats of ten, approximately 75 feet to their owners waiting at the finish line. The winner of each heat will compete in a final race to determine the winning wiener dog! Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place!
