The Dashing Whippets was founded exactly 4 (!!) years ago from this day. To mark this milestone, we'll be meeting at the very spot where it all started, at City Hall Park, right by the main 4/5/6 City Hall train station exit.
When this team started, Matt and I lived in Manhattan on opposite sides of Central Park. We've moved since, and the team has grown many times over in the surrounding boroughs and neighborhoods. We've built a great crew out in Brooklyn with our regular training runs, so we'd like to celebrate this by ending our Anniversary Run in Brooklyn at Franklin Park (in Crown Heights). The partying starts at 1pm. RSVP to the FB event page!
The route will consist of going across the Brooklyn Bridge, running along Flushing Ave and up Vanderbilt Ave. We'll end down Park Place to the bar. The total mileage will be ~5 mi:
If you'd like to add on more miles (14-17 miles is the long run for Brooklyn Half runners), please RSVP for the Manhattan or Brooklyn runs, and meet at City Hall Park at noon! You can also just meet us at the bar, of course too.
Hope you can all come out and wear your Whippets gear! All Whippets and non-Whippets are welcome!
