About 90 Hawaii Preparatory Academy Lower School students took part in a day of swimming, biking, and running as part of the school's annual Keiki Triathlon, held Sunday, Sept. 30 at the HPA Upper School.

The event was organized by Lower School Physical Education teacher Betsy Tranquilli as the culmination of a five-week "Triathlon Training" unit. During physical education class time, students learned about the importance of exercise and training, how to build endurance, how to eat properly to support endurance work, and practiced the proper techniques of swimming and running for distance. Bike support during the event was offered by local business Mountain Road Cycles.
