Weekly Wag

Welcome to this week’s edition of our weekly news and events roundup of all things Whippet-related.

Volunteer request

  • We would love to have someone volunteer to do a weekly writeup of results for the team site and for the weekly wag. This would involve checking out results and writing up a few sentences/paragraphs about PRs and other great performances.


Make sure to help us fill out our results database by entering your non-NYRR results here: http://www.dashingwhippets.org/race-result-submission-form/
