Downtown Durham get ready because Saturday is the Doughman Challenge! Teams of four will bike, run, swim and eat their way through this race after eating items like that burger above!

All proceeds benefit SEEDS, Durham Inner-city gardeners program, and SeeSaw Studios. A banquet will be held that night at Motorco Music Hall. That is open to the public as well.
