The "Running of the Wieners"

SUNDAY, OCT. 7: On-site race registration & check-in starts at 11:00am.

Daschunds of all shapes and sizes (well okay, all sizes... but probably just the one shape) will compete in various races and competitions. Click HERE for a glimpse into a race!

The races benefit local rescues chosen by race organizers NW Wiener Races, who have extensive experience in all aspects of the game. We're extremely grateful to have them as a part of our team- we know enough to stick to the bratwurst side of "hot dogs!"
