Triathlon — Sterghos & Huelster take Duathlon National titles

RICHMOND, Va. — Battling through temperatures that reached the low 90s, close to 1,200 duathletes ran and biked their way through the streets of downtown Richmond, Va., at the USA Triathlon Duathlon National Championship on Sunday. Nicholas Sterghos, 22, of West Point, N.Y., and Suzanne Huelster, 35, of Riverton, N.J., finished with the overall best times of the day.

The Championship event was part of the second day of the USAT National Duathlon Festival that featured off-road races on Saturday and closed Sunday with on-road races for youth, juniors and adults.

“I finished. That’s always a good thing,” said Greg Tuck, 47, of Mechanicsville, Va. “It was a very nice course. I really enjoyed it.”

Hundreds of spectators cheered on the competitors along the course, which wove through Richmond and the scenic parks and bridges near the James River. The Festival near the transition area provided a great venue for family and friends to enjoy food, live music and fun [and plenty of water] as they waited for their loved ones to cross the finish line.
