Wednesday Morning Run

We’re trying to bring the Wednesday morning runs back for the summer!  This is meant to be an easy run (i.e. a loop of the park).  Jordan will lead a 7:30 or so pace group and Francesca will lead an 8:00 pace group.  Anyone else want to volunteer to lead other paces?

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!

Thursday Uptown Track Workout

We will meet at 7pm doing warmup laps around the track followed by drills and introductions. The workout should begin around 7:15-7:30. If this is your first time keep an eye out for a runner(s) wearing a Whippet shirt. If you need to lock up a bag there are lockers available at the facility but we were informed by management that men’s locker room is susceptible to theft whereas the women’s locker room is not. Any men on the team should seek out one of our female members to assist in locking up a bag in their locker room when arriving at the track.

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!
