The Houston Rockets may be a basketball team, but they were focused on a different sport Saturday.

The team put down the ball and put on their running shoes Saturday morning at the 10th annual Rockets Run at Toyota Center.

Houstonians of all ages got in shape with the Rockets themselves as the team hosted a 5K run, 2-mile walk and kids' 1K.

Rockets legend Clyde Drexler greeted runners before the race.

All runners finished on the Rockets home court inside Toyota Center.

The event benefits the Autism Speaks organization, which is dedicated to raising awareness and funding autism research.
