Pamplona has the Running of the Bulls, Melbourne has the Running of the Wieners. Yesterday, September 19th, saw the inaugural Running of the Wieners in central Melbourne, with more than 50 dachsunds, some dressed as dressed as ballerinas, bikies and surf lifesavers, competing for the title of fastest sausage dog.

Just as much fun as Melbourne’s other major sporting event, the Formula 1 Grand Prix but much cheaper, quieter and far less smelly. As with the Grand Prix, hotels will be booked out well in advance for the event next year, so get in now with your bookings. And if you have a dachsund, get him in training.
