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.
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!

They’re all winners. Well, not all, just the ones who came first in their category. But they are all amazing in their own, special, scurrying way! Over 2,500 people came along in the glorious winter sunshine to see 96 dachshunds racing! The biggest Dash on record! The 12th Annual Dachshund Dash could not have asked for better conditions and a more joyous crowd. The racers put it all on the line - well, some of them didn't quite find the finish line - but it sure was thrilling and cute!
