NYRR Striders

What Is NYRR Striders?

NYRR offers 40+ free, coach-led walking sessions every week in senior centers, community facilities, and neighborhood parks across all five boroughs of NYC. The NYRR Striders program is geared toward adults 50+ (younger adults are welcome to participate as well) and aims to improve attitudes toward exercise, to make running and walking more accessible, and to increase the presence of fitness walkers and older adults in NYRR five-borough events year-round.

Each session includes:
•  30-45 minutes of walking (indoor or outdoor)
•  Stretching and drills to develop strength, coordination, and flexibility
•  Active conversations on nutrition and best practices for healthy living    
•  An opportunity to gather with peers in a fun, social environment

NYRR Striders participate in events such as the NYRR Washington Heights Salsa, Blues, and Shamrocks 5KRun as One Walk Presented by JPMorgan Chase, Global Running Day, the NYRR Youth Jamboree Presented by Tata Consultancy Services, and the Percy Sutton Harlem Walk

Walking 101 wellness education workshops are also available upon request. These fun one-hour interactive sessions, led by certified running coaches and fitness instructors, focus on critical areas of adults' health, nutrition, and independence.

How to Join

You can register on-site with an NYRR coach at one of the walking sessions. Once you submit an enrollment form, you will be given an NYRR Striders program membership card. Each time you attend a Striders walk, you work toward earning great prizes, such as a short-sleeve Striders t-shirt and complimentary entry into NYRR races.
