We gather at 6 pm inside Engineer's Gate at 90th & Fifth Ave on Tuesdays, 10 am on Saturdays. Announcements are made at 6:15 pm and we team up and take off soon after. Both walkers and runners are needed to guide athletes for distances ranging from 1.6 miles to 6 miles. While we have bag watchers for your items which are left on the bench, please take your valuables with you. You do not need to sign up. Just show up and see how we run.
