The Ute Warrior Challenge for the Tri-Ute Games was held on Friday, July 19. Young athletes and coaches took the challenge in Fort Duchesne’s heat and participated in a 5k run, obstacle course and swimming event. Athletes took it in full strides having to run the Ute Indian Tribe’s hilly terrain and brave the wide open waters of Bottle Hallow Lake, but in the end it was all worth it, as they were cheered on by parents, coaches and spectators.
