Dashing Whippets Running Team Signs Sponsorship Deal with Bakline
The Dashing Whippets Running Team (DWRT) has signed a sponsorship agreement with Bakline, a Brooklyn based performance and apparel brand. DWRT is excited to partner with Bakline, especially since it is a local, grassroots company that makes high quality apparel for runners. Having already collaborated with Bakline with our women in the pro field of the New York City Marathon, we are delighted to take our partnership to a new level and across our entire membership!
The Dashing Whippets Running Team is a New York-based running team founded upon, and driven by, the diversity of our team members. Comprised of runners from all over the city, the country and the world, with greatly different running goals, our team finds unity in recognizing and appreciating our differences, our mutual enjoyment of running, and participating together in the New York running community and beyond.
Bakline was founded in 2008 by brothers Rob Schnabel and Matt Vosburgh – right here in Brooklyn, just down the street from our team president’s apartment!. They have been fusing art, sport, and street culture into a distinctive New York-inspired sportswear and lifestyle brand ever since. They use high performance fabrics in their apparel, and most importantly, they are dedicated to authentically engaging with their customers. The Whippets have have experienced this first hand! Between the professional kit, and their commitment to sustainable environmental practices and charitable giving, Bakline is an ideal partner for the Whippets.
