What should I wear to volunteer at a NYRR event?


  • In the winter, dress as warmly as possible. Wear layers that you can remove if the day warms up. Be sure to wear a warm winter hat that covers your ears and warm gloves/mittens. 
  • In the summer, wear lightweight clothing. We will provide a baseball-style cap for our 2018 weekly races. Be sure to apply sunscreen.
  • Comfortable shoes are a must. You will be standing for the entire shift.
  • We will provide safety vests and a laminated card with emergency numbers on it as well as volunteer guide that includes a map of the race course and the locations of race amenities.
