3rd Annual Running of the Chihuahuas returns to Albuquerque Fall 2017! In our first year, 143 chihuahuas and chi mixes raced to stardom, and year two 165 chihuahuas attended! 

Beer garden, inflatable jumpers, food trucks, pet booths, face painting, chihuahua races, family fun for all ages with $500 in prizes!

All breed contests for Best Costume and Doggie/owner lookalike. Portion of proceeds to benefit Paws and Stripes. Dogs must be current on vaccinations and leashed when not racing. Unruly dogs will be asked to leave; all owners must pick up after pets.

The first 100 chihuahuas to register for the races receive a sWAG bag!
