Geelong Harness Racing Club is hosting an adorable Dachshund Dash this weekend

Words by Staff Writer

Sausage dogs assemble. Dachshund lovers, this one's for you.

Dachshund. Dachsie. Wiener-Dog. Whatever you want to call ’em, we know you love ’em.

Whether it’s because of a Dachshunds’ affable personality and high energy, their small, portable size or their downright adorable appearance, these long, lovable pooches are quite the little charmers. So, for the second year in a row, the Geelong Harness Racing Club is hosting a ‘Dachshund Dash’ this weekend.

Taking place on Sunday 21 January 2024 from 4pm at the GHRC in Corio, the day will see a bunch of heats with the first three placings of each heat going through to the final.

The dachshund heats are all finalised for this Sunday, but if your little sauso is more of a fashionista type, there is also a ‘Fashions on the Field’ best-dressed competition happening on the day, so get that outfit sorted and strut those paws. Those interested in this should check out the registration form on GHRC facebook site (in comments) for further details.

Prizes will be dished out to the top runners, though really, witnessing this event everyone is a winner.

Free entry for spectators, and there will be food trucks on site including Chubby Bao, Mr. Pro Whipp Ice Cream Van locations: Geelong and Bellyz Donutz. Party Girl World – Family Events & Parties will be painting the kiddies faces as well.

Bring your picnic rug/chair and enjoy the adorable fun!
