What we're about

The Dashing Whippets Running Team is a New York based running team that is founded on, and driven by, the diversity of our team members. With team members from all over the city, the country and the world, and with greatly different running goals, we find unity in recognizing and appreciating each others differences and our mutual enjoyment of running and participating in the New York running community and beyond.

Our goal is to help each other become the best runners that we can and to fulfill our potential as athletes - whether that is to run your first race, run a PR, a marathon, an ultra marathon or an Ironman - our team spirit, expert coaches and training plans will help you achieve and exceed your goals. As a team, we aspire to be a net contributor to the running community by hosting multiple training sessions per week for runners of all abilities and pace, maintaining a low annual membership fee that ensures we are open to all, cheering at races and giving back to the community through volunteering and fundraising for local nonprofit organizations.

The Dashing Whippets Running Team is a 501(c)(3) non-profit running organization operating under the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA (http://www.rrca.org/)). In 2012, the team received the Outstanding Club Website Award (http://www.rrca.org/about/history/award-winners/) from RRCA and received New York Road Runners Annual Team Spirit Award (http://www.nyrr.org/causes-and-community/local-clubs/club-night-winners).

Upcoming events (5)

Brooklyn Monday Easy Run

Prospect Park

The team is excited to restart group runs! But we will have to do things a bit differently for the foreseeable future. Details are as follows: - All participants will be required to answer whether they agree to the team's new waiver when they RSVP. The waiver can be found here: https://www.dashingwhippets.org/dashing-whippets-running-team-liability-waiver/ - All runs will be capped at 20 participants. Please RSVP. If you don’t RSVP, please do not show up. If you do RSVP and cannot come, please change your RSVP to no so people on the waiting list can come. - Face coverings will be required during your time at team runs. - All runs will be easy runs for now since it’s easier to run at an easy pace with masks on and so we can work on logistics before we transition to workouts. - Please comply with all local, state, and federal regulations and guidance. For instance, if you have recently come from a place that requires a 14 day quarantine, do not come to team runs until those 14 days are up. - If you are feeling even slightly sick, please don’t come to a team run! - We haven’t seen each other for a while at organized runs, but please resist the urge to hug, shake hands, or even give fist bumps! - We plan on breaking the group of 20 up into groups of fewer than 10.
