Inverleigh Dachshund Derby 2017 - March 5

The 2017 Inverleigh Dachshund Derby is a family fun day to be held on Sunday 5th March 2017.

The 2016 Inverleigh Dachshund Derby attracted more than 70 four-legged entrants, including a few furry non-sausage dog impostors. There were also events for the more sluggish sausages, with fancy dress and tricks categories. And keeping in the theme of the day, derby goers feasted on snags trackside at Victoria Park.

This year again, various events and races will run throughout the day including:

  • Fancy Dress 
  • Eleven-Legged Race (2 people plus 2 dogs)
  • Billy Can Race
  • Pooper Scooper
  • The Dachshund Derby 
  • The All Breeds Race
First, second and third place winners will receive a prize and a ribbon! 

The Derby will start at 9am and all competing dogs will need to be registered. Registering will be from 9am to 9:30am and will cost $15.

No dogs higher than 300mm from the shoulder will be allowed compete in the events. However small dogs of all breeds are also welcome to compete.
