Your wiener has been working hard all offseason for this, and now the time has arrived for the nation’s longest-running wiener dog derby! Registration is open for the 2019 Wiener Dog Derby, where participants square off in Wiener Stadium at Soulard Market to determine the dashingest dachshund in all of the land.
As usual, in a series of six-dog elimination heats, competitors race down a 30-foot track with the winning wiener moving on to the next round until a champion is crowned. However, NEW THIS YEAR: there will be a Wiener Dog Derby hat contest (for hoomans only) so make sure you come dressed for the derby!
There are four age-based classes for participating pups.
Registration is available the day of the event, but in order to avoid a distracted dachshund, register online and hit the ground running on race day. Register now before it's too late: registration online closes February 22!
