Weekly Wag

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

Good luck to everyone doing the SI Half, Chicago Marathon, and other races this weekend!

Races Nearing Capacity
If an upcoming race is nearing capacity and you want to do it, make sure to register! It’s almost impossible to get in once the race fills up.

Other Updates


Thanks to our results team for compiling all the data in our database! Brian Donaghy has put together race links on our site where we can display top ten AG and PR performances. We will continue to build this out and improve on this going forward, but to keep our database full of all our team races results, make sure to fill out the link above for non-NYRR races!

And thanks a ton to Martina, who is writing up the results! If you have any non-NYRR results and would like to be featured on our Weekly Wag and have the result in our database, make sure to fill out the results form here: http://www.dashingwhippets.org/race-result-submission-form/
