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, Strava, and Fitletic, Inc. 

Track Meet

The track meet is this Saturday! We would love to have as many people on the team run it as possible.  We currently only have one Whippet woman registered for the mile and need four to win our challenge against NBR. Make sure to register soon so we have good information to make heats and seed everyone. Register here and share it with friends!  http://trackmeet.dashingwhippets.org
