Welcome to the DASHING WHIPPETS Running Team in Boston!

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.

Due to covid, we’re down to one weekly run, but hope to bring back our speed workouts at some point (checkout Meetup for full details and updates):

  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. For social distancing we meet up outdoors, alternating between Clemente Field by Fenway and Brewers Fountain on the Boston Common, see our Meetup page for details.

During more normal times we also host weekly speed workouts pending popular demand:

  1. Tuesday Night Speed Workout (Short Intervals) in Cambridge at 6:45 PM: We meet at the MIT Outdoor Track (Steinbrenner Stadium) in Cambridge for shorter interval and hill workouts, both on and off the track. These workouts are customized for individual race training plans.
  2. Thursday Morning Speed Workout (Long Intervals and Tempos) in Cambridge at 6:30 AM: We meet at the MIT Outdoor Track again, same location as the Tuesday Night Speed Workouts, for longer intervals and tempo workouts, typically off the track and around the river. Get your day off to a great start.
