KCAW’s Robert Woolsey and Emily Forman captured first place for Raven Radio in the Corporate Division of the 30th Annual Julie Hughes Triathlon on Saturday (5-17-14). JHT veteran Woolsey, team captain and lead strategist, anchored the bicycle leg, and opted to put Forman, a 28-year-old former collegiate swimmer in the pool and on the running course. The tactic worked: KCAW’s main rivals all fled the division leaving the Ravens a clear path to the championship.

105 competitors participated in the event, which was created 30 years ago by Bill and Carol Hughes in memory of their daughter Julie, a high-school swimmer who died of leukemia. Julie’s sister, Susan Suarez, won this year’s family relay with her two sons — one of several multi-generational teams that have competed in Alaska’s oldest continuously-held triathlon.
