The Running of the Wieners is hosted by Big Beaver Brewing Co. and Blown Spoke Hard Cider Co., which are donating a portion of their proceeds of beer, hard cider, barbecue and merchandise sales for the day to the low-cost spay/neuter clinic for dogs and cats. The races will be at a different location this year – Blown Spoke’s new cider production facility at 245 S. Madison Ave. in Loveland.

It is free to participate, and more than two dozen dogs are already pre-registered. Mixed-breed dachshunds up to 25 pounds are allowed but will have a separate division.
