Wiener Dog Dash:
Who has the fastest wiener in Leesburg?! The races, which benefit Loudoun County Animal Shelter and the Cure Alzheimer's Fund, are pretty simple but tons of fun! Dachshunds will be organized into heats, then heat winners race in the finals to determine the grand prize winner. One person will be needed at the starting line and one person at the finish line.
All racers will receive a goody bag, and heat winners receive a prize. First place wins $100 and a pair of tickets to any show of their choice! Bring your dachshund and join us for a great day!
Attendance is free! The $25 entry fee purchased above secures your dachshunds spot in the race! All proceeds go to Loudoun County Animal Shelter and the Cure Alzheimer's Fund.
The races start at 12:30pm Saturday, October 28th outside Tally Ho Theater. If raining, the race will take place in the auditorium.
How to Register:
To register your dachshund, please purchase one Dachshund Entry Fee above (limit two per family). All contestants must arrive at the Tally Ho Theater at 11:30am. Two people are needed to race a dog. Racers must be a dachshund. Dachshund mixes will be allowed as long as their main breed is dachshund and pass the eye test. We will not be accepting any more entries once we are sold out.
Please note that according to city code, all dogs must be on a leash when not competing in the races. All dogs must also have up-to-date vaccinations. Happy Halloweener!
