Only speed counts: According to the organizers, 60 four-legged friends started at the dachshund race in Oberkrämer (Oberhavel district) in Brandenburg on Sunday. That was a record, said a spokeswoman. The dogs had to get 41 meters behind them, as it was said. Again and again the sound of "On your marks, get set, go" sounded across the square - and the respective starter raced across the square to the applause of the visitors while their time was being taken. According to the organizers, around 1000 guests watched the spectacle.
