Something hilariously awesome took place in Cincinnati, Ohio on Friday, September 20th: the 2013 Hillshire Farm Running of the Wieners. 100 energetic dachshunds dressed in hot dog bun costumes (complete with plush ketchup and mustard) ran their hearts out in the race at Fountain Square. This annual race is the official opening event for Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati.
This year’s winners were Mitzi (1st), Buster (2nd), and Dunn (3rd). But one look at the photos makes it clear that every single competitor was a champion.
