Dachshund Dash Race - Watch Your Wiener Run!
Wiener dogs are already funny to look at. Now try watching over 75 of them zig, zag, jump, and generally get confused in a test of speed and intelligence! Ok, we’re being dramatic. The pups just need to run 150 feet from one end of the Dash to the other. Do you have dachshund with a need for speed and a nose for the finish line? Sound easy enough? Start training your wiener dog now! Dogs wear numbers and compete in heats of four or more. Dogs in each heat are escorted on leash the full length of the course to encourage wagering by spectators. Winners receive Festival Money and prizes:
First – $150 Festival Money and wiener dog hat crown (must be worn throughout Oktoberfest)
Second – $100 Festival Money and one-of-a-kind Oktoberfest logo dog bowl
Third – $50 Festival Money and use of the wiener dog outhouse.
Winning races will be nationally televised on ESPN (Enter Special Pups Now) network (YouTube).
NOTE: Competition is FREE to enter, but pre-registration required and admission ticket must be purchased separately (dogs get in free).
