5 Boro Pizza Challenge
September 23 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm| $30
Five slices. Five boros. One day. The 5 Boro Pizza Challenge is competitive eating meets The Amazing Race, a test of your subway savvy and your Instagram filter prowess. The challenge begins under the arch in Washington Square Park, where participants will get a list of five pizzerias, one in each NYC boro. Visit them in any order, eat a slice, and document it on Instagram using the official hashtag, #5boropizzachallenge. The finish line will be an after-party (location to be announced) in Greenwich Village where finishers will receive a 5 Boro Pizza Challenge medal. The first team or individual to complete the challenge will be named the 2017 5 Boro Pizza Challenge champion, which includes serious bragging rights as well as other cool prizes. This event is a fundraiser for Transportation Alternatives, NYC’s leading advocate for walking, biking and public transportation, so no car travel allowed (including taxis, Uber, Lyft, etc.). You’ll have to get around the way most New Yorkers do — subway, bus, ferry, bike, and of course, your own two feet. Registration ($30) includes entry into the 5 Boro Pizza Challenge, as well as a t-shirt and finisher’s medal. Participants cover the cost of pizza and transportation.
