Saturday, October 8th, marks the return of the Mooresville Wiener Race to downtown Mooresville. It costs $25 to enter your purebred Dachshund to run, but it’s free to watch. Proceeds go to local animal charities. Sign in of wieners begins at 9:30am and the first heat is at 11am. You must register right away! You’ll find the registration form on the above website, as well as contact information for questions. There is a limit of 180 wieners for the races, and the deadline is Saturday, October 1st.
Wieners, or your people, please read the official rules of the Wiener Race. Make sure to read these rules. I’m serious. Besides the different categories for racing wieners (puppies, juniors, adults, and seniors) there will also be a costume contest (of course), and raffles.
According to this very cute map, the races are taking place at the corner of North Church Street and East Center Avenue.
