Choose Between Two Options

  • $29 for a Bite of the Big Apple food race on Sunday, November 18 from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (a $60 value)
  • $55 for the above race for two (a $120 value)

During the Bite of the Big Apple race, teams aided by sets of clues dash through the streets to sample the wares of New York eateries both famous and obscure. The race covers Upper and Lower Manhattan from the east side to the west side, ensuring participants get a comprehensive city experience. Contestants do not have to run to participate in the race, but the team that finishes first gets prizes including gift certificates to various restaurants and other goodies.

POGO Events

Featured by ABC News and Time Out New York, POGO Events hosts exciting scavenger hunts and races that introduce teams to the popular and hidden jewels of New York, San Francisco Bay, and Las Vegas. Their signature Amazing New York Scavenger Hunt sends teams sprinting through city streets, leading them to destinations with clues that require them to solve puzzles, complete tasks, or photograph certain objects. While every race is different, challenges might include taking a picture with a hot-dog vendor, playing Dance Dance Revolution, or telling a dog his pants are too tight without offending him.

In addition to their preplanned adventures, the race-masters at POGO Events can help customers design their own expedition through customized tours or build-it-yourself races. The POGO team also organizes standalone social events such as trivia nights and adult summer camps.
