Event description

Description

Five slices. Five boros. One day.

Hungry for a challenge that you'll only find in New York City? It's competitive eating meets The Amazing Race; the ultimate test of not only your ability to navigate the five boroughs, but also your gastrointestinal fortitude. And all for a great cause.

What started as an annual adventure between slice-loving friends has grown into a much buzzed-about NYC tradition. Now in its fourth year, the 5 Boro Pizza Challenge brings together the world's most die-hard pizza enthusiasts for a challenge like no other.


How it works

1. Meet. On Saturday, September 28th, check in at the Red Cube (140 Broadway in lower Manhattan). There, you''ll receive your t-shirt and size up the competition. At 11:00 a.m. sharp, we'll reveal the list of five selected pizzerias -- one in each borough -- and the challenge will begin!

2. Hit the Streets. Plot your course to each pizzeria using your personal power (bike or your own two feet) or via public transit (subway, bus, ferry, bike share). The use of cars, taxis, or e-hail/ride-share services like Uber, Lyft, or Via are not allowed. The sequence in which you visit the boroughs is entirely up to you.

3. Eat. Eat a full slice of pizza at each at each pizzeria and post your photo evidence on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #5boropizzachallenge.

4. Repeat. You will consume a total of five delicious slices -- one in each borough. The 5 Boro Pizza Challenge organizers spend all year carefully researching and choosing from some of the best pizza New York City has to offer.

5. Complete. Competitors return to the finish line and after-party (location TBA). Our finish line judges will verify your photo proof, and you'll have finished the 5 Boro Pizza Challenge! All competitors receive a t-shirt; those who complete the Challenge will receive the coveted 5 Boro Pizza Challenge finisher's medal.

The first team or individual to complete the challenge will be earn the title of 5 Boro Pizza Challenge 2019 Champion -- a distinction comes with serious bragging rights and other cool prizes.
