Running of the Wieners (4th Annual)

It's that time of year again- time to register your pup for the 4th Annual Running of the Wieners!

NOTE: be sure to register for this event in advance using the e-mail address below. Showing up the day of the event without pre-registering will not allow you and your dog to participate.

This year, the race is expanding and is a part of The Waterfront's (waterfrontpgh.com) Fall Fest, happening on September 21, 2013. The same rules as past years apply- please register your pup, who must be 25 pounds or less, by emailing this address: 

[masked]

Please include the following info in your email:

Your Name

Dog's Name

Dog's Breed

Dog's Weight

Would you like a complimentary hot dog costume or do you have your own?

Your Phone #


The event will take place at The Waterfront in a safe, enclosed area similar to years past. 


Please be sure to save the date and register today! Registrations availability is first come first serve and there is a cap on the number of spots.


We look forward to racing with you this year!

    Fingers crossed it's not rescheduled for the 5th. Doki's competing in Sewickley's Das Dachshund Dash.

    Too bad. Thanks for the update. Maybe I'll race my mini Cooper in October. Have a good day everyone.

    Organizers just informed me TODAY'S RACE IS CANCELLED.

    They will reschedule for a Saturday in October, and I will list it here for our group.

    Due to the rain, we will not be able to make it - but any of you who are looking for a doxie play date some time, please email me. We have a fenced in back yard (a mini fence for doxies) where they can run around. We live in Brookline. We have two pups - Ween, an 18-lb dachshund, and Biscuit, a 9-lb Pomchi. We'd really like for Ween and Biscuit to get to play with some doxies, since most of our friends' dogs are larger breeds. My email is [masked] - hope to hear from you

    Unfortunately, I only have e-mail contact with the organizers. I have not heard back from them.

    Since the races are part of a Fall Festival, I would assume they would try to have them go on unless the rain is really bad.
