KENNEWICK, WA - Fun runs are fun and a 5K is enough to get your heart rate going, but there is another challenge out there that might demand more from your body.

Saturday at the Southridge Sports Complex in Kennewick, athletes competing in many fringe sports like boxing and martial arts got together to show off their skills at the Tri-Cities Skookum Challenge. Skookum is an event that brings all of those sports together under one roof to appreciate all forms of athleticism.

"Alone or isolated each one is solid, but if you brought them all together you could have a great commercial event and celebrate the sports in a way I think they should be celebrated," explained Chris Frye, one of the organizers of the event.

The entire day was filled with clinics and demonstrations but from 6-9pm they had the main competitions.
