The East River Park track is east of the FDR at East 6th Street. It is a little over a mile from the closest subway stops (6 to Astor Place or L to First Ave).
Thursday workouts change from week to week and will be announced in advance.
Important Information about East River Park Track: The Whippets have been running here for three years and have experienced thefts of our belongings. We will take extra precautions to keep our bags safe, but please avoid bringing valuables -- and it would be safest to run with your wallet on you.
Please be aware that there are limited overhead lights, so it gets a little dark, and during winter months the bathrooms are locked and the water fountains are off. If you have a bike, make sure you have a lock because you'll have to keep your bike outside the track area.
If you feel uncomfortable leaving your personal belongings at the track we now have a new and much more convenient designated spot to drop off them off. Go to Ace Bar at 531 East 5th Street between A and B and ask for Justin or Charlo and tell them you run with the team. They will store our belongings for us. Afterwards we will reconvene here and share some beers and replenish the lost carbs. ***Please note that they will not let you in without your ID so please bring that with you to the track. http://www.acebar.com/about.html
See you there -- and please contact a Whippet captain if you have any questions!
