Dachshund Dash Races

Calling all dachshunds for the annual Frisco Dachshund Dash! Stay tuned for registration for 2024 in the Spring. 

As a warm-up to the Hotter 'N Firecrackers 5K and part of our July 3 'Night at the Races' - dachshunds will race to earn fantastic prizes! The races, which benefit Collin County Animal Shelter, are pretty simple, but tons of fun!

Dachshunds will be organized into heats. Heat winners then race in the finals to determine the grand prize winners. Each pup will run 10-15 feet from start to finish with the help of their owners. One person will be needed at the starting line and one person at the finish line.


July 3, 7 p.m. Registration/Check-in starts at 6:30 p.m.


Simpson Plaza, Frisco Square, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd., Frisco, TX 75034


$10 entry fee. Entry fee will need to be paid at check-in at the event. All proceeds go to Collin County Animal Shelter.


Great giveaways, including heat winner prizes and grand prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd places.
