Oklahomans will eat and then run in a 10K relay race Saturday morning to support the efforts of the Oklahoma City-based nonprofit, Neighborhood Services Organization (NSO).

It's called the NSO Hungryman Challenge, an eat-then-run 10K relay race featuring costumed teams of two or four people.

The race starts at 8 a.m. on May 17 in the Ninth Street District of downtown Oklahoma City. The event will feature the 10K race, a costume contest and a raffle. Online registration has now closed, but interested teams can still sign up at 6:30 a.m. on race day. The fee is $25 per person.
