What should I wear to volunteer at a NYRR event?

There is no specific dress code at our events. Our advice is to always dress for the weather, especially:

  • In the winter, if you are volunteering outside, you will need to dress as warm as possible, it's always a little colder at the event than you expect. Be sure to bring hat and gloves.

  • In the summer, wear light clothing, bring a hat or cap in case you are stationed in a sunny location, and be sure to wear sunscreen.

  • Comfortable shoes are recommended for all of our volunteer shifts.

If you are working outside you will be provided with a bright safety vest, a laminated card with emergency numbers on it, and a Frequently Asked Questions document.
