Can my dog or a friend join me at an NYRR Striders session?

NYRR Striders members may have adult and young guests visit the walking sessions, on occasion. Each guest must complete a general participant application, although they will not be considered a program member or eligible for incentives. We ask that children stay with their parent/guardian at all times and complete the distance and activities they are most comfortable with.

At this time, only New York State registered service dogs are welcomed to participate in any sessions held in private facilities, social services centers, and local parks. They must be on a leash to comply with regulations for the safety of the other participants.
