Training Plans

DWRT on Strava

The DWRT have adopted Strava as our key community-building platform. The next run is September 7. Please feel free to join (it’s free) and link your GPS watch, or log and monitor your workouts. You can set any workout as “private,” or you can share your routes and give kudos and comment on our friends’ workouts. Please join the team’s group, as our target is to have 300 of our teammates participating on the platform by December.

Adidas club run

The DWRT is pleased to be one of the lead team partners to Adidas, one of the world’s largest retailer of high-quality sportswear and running gear. Our next Adidas run is in September at the Adidas store, Broadway and Houston Street. Bag drop is available.
