East River Park Track Workout

The East River Park track is east of the FDR at East 6th Street. It is a little over a mile from the closest subway stops (6 to Astor Place or L to First Ave).

Thursday workouts change from week to week and will be announced in advance.

Important Information about East River Park Track: The Whippets have been running here for many years and have experienced thefts of our belongings. We will take extra precautions to keep our bags safe, but please avoid bringing valuables — and it would be safest to run with your wallet on you.

Please be aware that there are limited overhead lights, so it gets a little dark, and during winter months the bathrooms are locked and the water fountains are off. If you have a bike, make sure you have a lock because you’ll have to keep your bike outside the track area.

We recommend not bringing valuables to the track. You can drop stuff off at Ace Bar (531 East 5th Street between A and B) — ask for Justin or Charlo and tell them you run with the team. 

See you there — and please contact a Whippet captain if you have any questions!
