13th ANNUAL DACHSHUND DASH - SUNDAY 9 JUNE, 2019

REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED

It’s not called the Melbourne Cup of dog racing for nothing! It’s grown (the numbers of dogs racing, not the actual dogs) to 100 speedy canines madly dashing, leaping or sniffing about to the finish line. Cheer along as the scurrying sausage dogs, most with more heart than sense of direction, and their equally enthusiastic owners, battle it out for the title of top dog.

Video: The famous Port Fairy Winter Weekends Dachshund Dash has reached new heights with this theme song and music video, which was launched to rapturous crowds at this year’s internationally renowned Port Fairy Folk Festival.

  • Race categories include Under 2 years, Over 2 years and Veterans.

  • Novelty events include best dressed and an all-breeds race.

  • Fantastic atmosphere that attracts a crowd of 3,000+ with BBQ, coffee cart, expert race-calling and more!

  • A winter Sunday morning like you’ve never known it!

  • To get you in the mood for the 2019 race, we have commissioned a special song and video about our iconic race. Watch it now, it’s catchy!
