In two hours and seven minutes, Peter Hufnagel continued his dominance of local triathlons as he took first place overall at the Charlottesville International Triathlon on Sunday morning at Walnut Creek Park.

Athletes endured a grueling course on Walnut Creek’s rugged landscape that consisted of 0.9 miles of open-water lake swimming and 23.5 miles of biking, before ending with six miles of running through trails.

Add triple-digit temperatures to the equation, and you’ve got one of the toughest activities you could possibly do.

Hufnagela UVa graduate and teacher at the Miller School, won the event last year in

a time just less than two hours and also won the Charlottesville Sprint Triathlon — also held at Walnut Creek, last month.

“The heat definitely played a factor today,” said Hufnagel , who finished two seconds ahead of the second-place competitor. “Last year, I completed the event in under two hours, so I struggled a little bit out there today with the weather.

Hufnagel added: “My best leg of the race is the cycling. I feel if you can be fast on the bike, you have a great chance of winning because the majority of the race is on the bike.”

Hufnagel who runs the Charlottesville Bike Club, is also running a children’s cycling program at Miller.

“I always run the triathlon at the Miller School,” he said, “and I get ready for these events by training with my students up there.” program at Miller.
