Weekly Wag

Welcome to this week’s edition of our weekly news and events roundup of all things Whippet-related.

The Dashing Whippets Running Team thanks our 2016 Team Sponsors for their generous support of the club: RunnerClinicNYC, Brooklyn Roasting Company, and Fitletic, Inc. 

Strava sponsorship

As you may have noticed on our site, Strava has agreed to sponsor the team! We’ve added a widget that displays recent runs uploaded to the group Strava page on the site. We have a target of getting up to 300 members on the Strava group page.

Tom Flanagan is our in-house Strava expert, so let him know if you have any questions!
