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).

Brooklyn Weekend Run

Prospect Park Entrance at Grand Army Plaza

We are now doing our Brooklyn runs on Saturdays. We'll try to mix up the routes as much as possible so we don't get too bored doing lops of Prospect Park. This will mainly serve as an opportunity for a long run. If you have any ideas for courses, please let us know!
