DWRT-Boston is a Boston-based running team and a chapter of the Dashing Whippets Running Team in NYC. Since launching in 2015, the Boston chapter has forged a closely-knit community of runners of varying abilities, united by our enjoyment of competitive running and our belief that camaraderie and teamwork enhance the running experience and drive our best performances.  Drawing on the larger Dashing Whippets organization, the Boston chapter offers the intimacy of a small team with the resources of a large running club.  DWRT thrives on the diversity of its team members and maintains low annual dues to maximize inclusivity.  We are excited to expand our presence in Boston and continue to welcome new members.

  1. Saturday Morning Long Run in Boston at 7:30/8:00 AM: We’ll typically have routes of 3-5 miles and 8-12 miles. Paces / pace groups typically range from 7 – 9 minute miles (though we welcome all paces). Routes wander from Somerville to Cambridge and across Boston to keep it interesting. In 2020, we began alternating start locations between Clemente Field by Fenway and Brewers Fountain on the Boston Common, see our Meetup page for details.
  2. Track Workouts: For the winter we’ve suspended our track workouts, but look forward to starting them up again on either Tuesday or Thursday once the weather gets nicer! These workouts are typically held at the Harvard Track / Tempo Loop or the MIT Track.
