Here are some frequent questions that members and prospective members have asked.
Where can I purchase a team singlet?
You can purchase a singlet on our meetup site and pick them up at our sponsor, Runner Clinic NYC. See apparel information here.
When and where are your training runs?
First off, we recommend you join our Meetup site which lists all of our training runs. We host runs every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in Manhattan (Central Park & East River Park Track) and Brooklyn (Prospect Park). Please RSVP if you plan on attending. In rare cases, we may cancel the run due to a team race or weather, so please be sure to check the Meetup site.
Everyone looks like they’re too fast! Am I too slow?
In most cases, there will be someone running your pace, but it’s helpful to ask in the comments section of the actual training run page if there’s someone you can run with. You might be surprised with the response you get! You can find the training runs on our Meetup site.
I’m running a race but it’s not listed on the Meetup site. Can you post it?
We welcome all team members to post races they’re doing on our Facebook group. We will put the event on our team calendar if there are multiple Whippets running the race and if you or someone is willing to host the event. Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I run NYRR races for DWRT?
To run NYRR races under our team name, please log into MyNYRR and edit your profile by selecting DWRT from the drop down menu. For races that you have already registered for, please email email@example.com to request that they add the team name for those races.
