The Dashing Whippets compete in the top level A division of the NYRR Club Points competition. Current season standings can be seen here. We field competitive open and masters teams, and we are proud to field among the largest teams in the city in each of these races. The points series is an opportunity for the whole team to come out in force in blue and yellow to celebrate our presence on the local racing scene and to support each other.

The points race schedule is determined every year by the NYRR Club Council, of which DWRT is an active member. Our training plans feature these races, either as goal races or as workouts and fitness checks. Along with our own track meet, the NYRR Night at the Races series at the Armory, and select other local races and track meets, these are the focus of the club’s competitive and social running energy.

The team values participation from everyone, so please be sure to register for NYRR and Armory races with a Dashing Whippets affiliation! The scoring for individual races is based only on the fastest five team members (ten for Team Championships), so more participation can only help our score. Furthermore, we view the size of our team as another metric of our strength (even though it is not scored by NYRR), so we welcome and strongly encourage every member of the team to register for these races.

For NYRR races, you can choose an affiliation during registration or email if you need to change it after the fact. For Armory races, you can choose to join the team during signup or you can add yourself to the time later through the RunSignup registration portal.
