The 12th Annual "Running of the Wieners"
WHEN: SUNDAY, OCT. 6
WHERE: WIENER DOG STADIUM INSIDE MUNICH FESTHALLE
Register online in advance to secure an early heat time.
On-site race registration & check-in will be available and starts at 11:00am
*Onsite registration does NOT guarantee an early heat time.
Dachshunds 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!"
