Brooklyn Weekend Run

We are now doing our Brooklyn runs on Saturdays.  We’ll try to mix up the routes as much as possible so we don’t get too bored doing lops of Prospect Park.  This will mainly serve as an opportunity for a long run.  If you have any ideas for courses, please let us know!

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 three 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.

If you feel uncomfortable leaving your personal belongings at the track, you can drop them 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.  They will store our belongings for us.  ***Please note that they will not let you in without your ID so please bring that with you to the track.   http://www.acebar.com/about.html

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