Annual Downtown Mooresville Wiener Race for October 8

Published 12:07 pm Thursday, September 29, 2016

MOORESVILLE — Mooresville will hold its annual Wiener Race on Saturday, October 8

Aside from having loads of fun watching feisty dachshunds do their racing thing, the event has a serious side as well: to help local animal advocates raise awareness and funds.

The fee to register and race your dog is $25 along with proof of all required vaccinations. Registration forms can be downloaded at and must be submitted no later than Sept. 30, 2016, with no registrations accepted on race day. This year organizers are limiting entries to the first 180 applicants submitting proper registration forms.

In addition to awarding trophies to winners of the four racing divisions (puppies, juniors, adults and seniors), wieners can compete for “Cutest” and “Best Dressed” as well.

Check-in begins at 9:30 am on race day with the first heat starting at 11 a.m.
