Athletes Compete in Skookum Challenge

Athletes from around the region were in the Tri-Cities this weekend for the Skookum Challenge.

It's a unique hybrid of a random workout of the day and an obstacle course.

Participants were challenged in activities like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and weight lifting, among other things.

A number of seminars were also held at the Southridge Sports and Events Complex, giving youth athletes the chance to learn from experts in their discipline.

A fight night of about 15 boxing bouts will ended the night.

This is the first time the Skookum Challenge was held in the Tri-Cities, but the event organizer says he hopes to have a larger challenge in October.
