Concordia College competes in the Australian HPV (Human Powered Vehicles) series each year. Better known as Pedal Prix, this extra-curricular activity provided by the College promotes personal fitness, teamwork and an opportunity for students to be responsible and be part of an on ongoing commitment. The season involves competing in multiple endurance races throughout Terms 1-3. Teams strive to work together to circulate their bikes around the circuit as many times as possible in the set amount of time during each race.
In 2023, Concordia College will be offering Pedal Prix as an extra-curricular activity for students across Years 7-12. Being a part of the program requires a large commitment both from students and their families. This includes students attending an after-school fitness session on Thursday nights and training in the trikes on weekends during the season. Students are required to also maintain a high level of training and fitness in their own time. Parents are also required to support the program in a range of ways including bike repairs, trailer towing, track marshalling, catering and event day duties.
The race locations and dates are still to be confirmed for next year. The race events could include:
- Mount Gambier – 8 Hour
- Loxton – 6 Hour
- Adelaide – 6 Hour
- Tailem Bend – 8 Hour
- Murray Bridge - 24 Hour
