Whippet Wag: April 2016

Welcome to the second edition of our news and events roundup of all things Boston Whippet-related.


Registration for the BAA 10k opened yesterday. It’s still open but will likely sell-out today or tomorrow. We’ll have a team training plan for this race and would love to have a big turnout. Register here before it closes: http://www.baa.org/races/10k/participant-information/athlete-registration.aspx

If you haven’t had a chance to check out our track workouts, we hope you’ll join us on Tuesdays. We’re now hosting free weekly track workouts open to all current members and anyone interested in joining the team at the MIT outdoor track. For full details and to RSVP see our meet-up page for next Tuesday’s workout: http://www.meetup.com/dashing-whippets-boston/events/229867839/

Because of the BAA 5k we will be cancelling our regular weekend run next Saturday, April 16. We’ll be back to our normal schedule on April 23. If you’re not running the 5k we encourage you to come out and cheer on your teammates.

Upcoming Races

The BAA 5k and the Boston Marathon are both next weekend and we have lots of runners doing each. Running either race? RSVP so we know to look for you:

Last but not least, the Whippets are co-sponsoring our first race, the Esplanade 5k on June 2nd. The race is capped at 300 runners so you’ll want to register early to help us represent the team.

We have a stash of long-sleeve tech tees and singlets in most sizes for men and women. If you’re interested in purchasing one ($25 each) email David at david@dashingwhippets.org for more details.

For those Whippets who ordered hoodies, they should be coming in next week. We’ll send out an email to those who ordered one when they arrive.

Happy running!
