In addition to the flagship wiener race, there will also be a "Running of the Bulldogs" and "All-Breed 'Rescue' Run." The canine winner will take home a wiener-and-dog-bone trophy to mark their triumph. But even better than the glory of victory is the knowledge that 100% of the proceeds from the day's events will go to the Lexington Humane Society, which cares for more than 5,000 animals.
Admission to the event is free, and there is a $20 registration fee for those who wish to register their dogs in the race (with all of those funds benefiting the Lexington Humane Society).
