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.

Vision Statement:

To be the preeminent running team in the New York City area and enable our members to be the best runners they can be.

Mission Statement:

The Dashing Whippets Running Team is a New York-based running team founded upon, and driven by, the diversity of our team members.  Comprised of runners from all over the city, the country and the world, with greatly different running goals, our team finds unity in recognizing and appreciating our differences, our mutual enjoyment of running, and participating together in the New York running community and beyond.  Together, our goal is to help one another become the best runners that we can be and to fulfill our potential as athletes. Our team spirit, expert coaches, and training plans help our members achieve and exceed their varied goals. As a team, we aspire to enrich and actively engage with the running community through hosting multiple training sessions per week, maintaining accessibility to all with a low annual membership fee, cheering at races, and giving back to the community through volunteering and fundraising for local nonprofit organizations.

We charge $30 in annual dues, but new members may try out the team for 90-days (more info).

Our goal is to be inclusive as possible.   We keep our dues low, and each November, we invite our members to participate in a Voluntary Contribution Drive, to contribute whatever they wish to the club, in accordance with their own means and the value they feel they have received from the club.

All contributions to the Voluntary Contribution Drive are 100% tax-deductible.  Thank you, members!
