Weekly Wag

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

The Dashing Whippets Running Team thanks our 2016 Team Sponsors for their generous support of the club: RunnerClinicNYC, Brooklyn Roasting Company, and Fitletic, Inc. 

Saturday Runs: Stay tuned for announcements regarding the Saturday run this week as we track the storm. If the wind and snow is projected to be very bad, we will cancel the runs by Friday mid-afternoon.

Manhattan Half Marathon: Please follow NYRR instructions regarding the half marathon on Sunday. They may turn it into a fun run if conditions are bad.
