Register now for Oktoberfest's Running of the Wieners
Do you have a dachshund with a need for speed and a nose for the finish line? Then sign up for the Running of the Wieners race on Sept. 19, a precursor to Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, which this year kicks off on Sept. 20.
Each dachshund, outfitted in their provided hot dog bun costume, will run approximately 75 feet in heats of ten to their owners at the opposite end. The winner of each heat will compete in a final race to determine the winning wiener dog. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.
Invite your friends and family to watch the races, too! Admission to view the race is FREE.
Only 100 registrants will be accepted. Registration fee includes registration of one dog, and includes one costume and one owner t-shirt.
