Mighty Texas Dog Walk - Austin Events and Festivals
Benefiting Texas Hearing and Service Dogs, the Mighty Texas Dog Walk in Austin is competing for the Guiness World Record Title of "Largest Dog Walk."

The current record is 17,427 dogs (and 169 breeds) and is held by The Great North Dog Walk in The Leas, South Shields, England.

The Austin event, which first began in 1999, held the record in 1999 and 2002, but GNDW is a dog walking juggernaut and will be difficult to overtake. They've been reigning champions every year since 2003. Of course, it doesn't hurt that they have no registration fee associated with their event.

The Austin course is a 3 mile route that begins and ends at the 1st Avenue bridge downtown. Gates open at 7:00 am and the Walk officially begins at 9:00 am.

You can register early online or at one of two Petco locations on April 14-17, 2010 (Great Hill Trails - North & Brodie Lane - South). Early registration saves you $5 and gets you your registration materials early (which includes the very cool official MTDW T-shirt designed by Mauro Garza).

You can also register and pick up your packet on the day of the Walk, but plan to come early when the gates open at 7:00 am.

And bring a baggy.
