Funny Choke 

We hope to see take-downs — not take-outs — Saturday.

SAT 2/19
We're excited that professionals aren't allowed at the amateur Missouri Valley Judo Championship Saturday at the KC North Community Center (3930 Northeast Antioch Road, 816-784-6100), although we would hate to see someone flub the subtle art of strangulation. The entry fee is $10; spectator admission is free. -- Annie Fischer

Run Like Hell
You'll definitely feel it in the morning.

SAT 2/19
Sometimes a masochist wants to get out of the dungeon and just live a little. The Psycho WyCo Run, a wintertime 50-kilometer jog over the rocky paths of Wyandotte County Lake Park starting at 7 a.m. Saturday, may be the perfect outlet for the fitness-minded self-flagellator. Those inclined to doubt the seriousness of this run should keep in mind that there's an eight-hour time limit to complete it -- so if you're good, you'll spend only about a quarter of the day running. If the weather doesn't cooperate, the paths, normally used for horses, can be slick and muddy -- nevermind the roots and rocks and hills. Aid stations every two miles offer runners hot soup, cookies and water. Athletes who are able to finish the run win "high-quality" prizes and rights to a "semi-crazy" after party, and all racers earn shirts to commemorate their painful participation. The entry fee is $30; call 816-810-0440. -- Christopher Sebela

Nothin' but Net

SAT 2/19
The Night Hoops Rebound Basketball League season begins Saturday at the Gregg Community Center (1600 John "Buck" O'Neil Way, 816-513-7534). The 17-25 age limit rules out many would-be players, but this scrappy format might be a satisfying alternative for spectators bored with the endless dramas of college and pro ball. -- Jason Harper
