Sanitarium is thrilled to be coming back to Gisborne, and each year the number of Weet-Bix TRYathletes keeps increasing! Again the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon event is located at Nelson Park. The TRYathlon starts with a short swim at the Enterprise Aquatic Centre, a 25m indoor pool. The Transition Area is located on Nelson Park field beside the pool, and the bike and run legs of the Kids TRYathlon are around the field and surrounding streets.
We create a safe environment where kids can focus on enjoying time with friends on the course or in activities around the Expo Village.
Every child, no matter their ability, is considered a champion and encouraged by Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon Ambassadors. A medallion is awarded for completion.
79% of parents tell us their child felt better about themselves or were glowing with pride on completion and their self-esteem and self-confidence improved.
TRYathletes receive a KIT stuffed full of goodies from Weet-Bix and our sponsors. Plus free breakfast and activities in the village for all.
