Afton Alps Ski Area was transformed Saturday into a setting for a grueling adventure race, where thousands of hardy runners scaled walls, climbed ski hills and slogged through mud. The race — Warrior Dash — drew runners from across the Midwest to south Washington County for the one-day event. Runners completed a 5K race the hard way: Mud mounds, rope bridges and a roaring fire were among the 13 obstacles faced along the way.
