The event was held to raise funds for Dachshund Rescue Australia, and also to raise awareness of how freakin cute dachshunds are, running around all over the place with their little legs.

More than 50 dogs competed on the day, in events for mini, standard, old and disabled dachshunds – as you may have guessed from the above pictures, there was also a best-dressed competition, which people took pretty seriously.

Per The Age, race organiser Scott Highfield said: “They’re really fast, especially the minis; the minis move faster than you think. It’s on for young and old as soon as they jump out of the blocks; it’s over very quickly.”
