Presumably, the Runners take damage having had to cross through it the
hard way -- running really fast. A mine blows up and they take shrapnel
damage, but after it's all said and done they've crossed the field and
are at the barn doors, so to speak.

Widow's Trap, to my understanding, is trashed once the die roll is
made. Players can keep on pulling out and it stays put.

It will. :) Seriously, most of the non-Threat Challenges will say
something along the lines of -

HIT AND RUN / Challenge
If alarm is triggered, all Runners present take 2 - X damage and Hit and
Run is trashed. X - Athletics.
