Results Database
Tom, Brian, Young, and Terry are still updating our results database, including a new feature that includes graphs on performance in different weather and rivals. Mine is Ryan Hepworth! If you don’t come up in the dashboard feature, it probably just means you don’t have enough recent races in the database.


We get a feed of all NYRR races, but if you run a non-NYRR race, you can enter it here: http://www.dashingwhippets.org/race-result-submission-form/
