More than 400 students, in grades three through six, signed up for the Lancaster School District’s fourth annual William Street School triathlon, which was held Wednesday evening.

The William Street School was represented by students in grades four through six. There also were third-graders from the districts’s four elementary schools, who will move up to the William Street School in September.

Depending on their grade level, the young athletes swam either 30 or 60 yards, biked one mile and ran half a mile.

“We really look to promote family fun and fitness with this event,” said Molly Marcinelli, principal at Como Park Elementary School.
