Worum es bei uns geht

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).

Prospect Park Thursday Speed Workout

Prospect Park Entrance at Grand Army Plaza

We are hosting weekly "track" workouts at Prospect Park every Thursday evening. The workouts will be identical to the East River Park Track workout of the week, which will be posted at least 24 hours beforehand. Although there is no track at Prospect Park, we'll find the flattest part of the park to do the scheduled workout. All paces are welcome. Please comment in Talk about this Meetup if you have any questions!

Central Park Speed Workout

Bethesda Fountain

We will meet at 7pm in the same location as the Tuesday night run on the 72nd transverse overlooking the Bethesda Fountain. Your 1-2 mile warm up run should be done independently before meeting at 72nd. Workouts vary but we generally do short intervals at higher paces than on tempo runs done on Tuesday with jog recoveries in between or oscillating paces between mid to fast end of your personal paces tolerances. If you need a place to drop off a bag the go to location for folks who don’t live near the park is the lockers available at the Jack Rabbit’s store on the 2nd floor of the TWC at Columbus Circle.

Friday Morning Run

72nd by Bethesda Fountain

Introducing Friday morning runs! It is meant to be an easy run at conversation pace. Typical route is up the east side entering the bridle path at east 85th and follow it around the park finishing at Columbus circle. More often than not we'll add Harlem Hill. Please post your pace in comments. We run rain or shine

Manhattan Weekend Run

Time Warner Atrium Entrance

Weekend runs are typically reserved for long runs often ranging from 12 to 20 miles, depending on the training plan. Every week features a different route, which will be posted a day or two prior. Runners are welcome to start earlier and/or cut out for their own needs. The route is provided to plan your exit or continuation strategies. PACING BUCKETS When RSVPing, we ask all of you to think about where you fall in the following buckets for your long run paces: 6C – 6:45 to 7:00 7A – 7:05 to 7:20 7B – 7:25 to 7:40 7C – 7:45 to 8:00 8A – 8:05 to 8:20 8B – 8:25 to 8:40 8C – 8:45 to 9:00 9A – 9:05 to 9:20 9B – 9:25 to 9:40 9C – 9:45 to 10:00 10A – 10:05 to 10:20 10B – 10:25 to 10:40 10C – 10:45 to 11:00 When splitting up for the pace groups, we’ll do it in big buckets of 6/7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 pace, and from that point on, we will ask you to identify each other in the sub-buckets of A, B or C. When you bucket yourself for a run, please try to stay within that range for a good portion of the run and help each other during the run. If you are doing a progression, please announce that you are splitting off so others who weren’t expecting faster paces don’t follow. Getting consistent pacing representation across a wide range is extremely difficult but it has to be a collective effort. Please RSVP to the meetups if you’re going to show up even if you are a regular. Please comment with expected distance and pace bucket!
