The Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon in New Plymouth is located at Ngamotu Beach. The swim is located in the sea, and runs parallel to the beach. The swim takes place at the end of the beach towards the Port. Tryathletes are generally able to stand-up during the short swim; however, we do encourage everyone to give swimming a go! The Transition Area is located on the access road near the reserve, and the bike and run of the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon on the nearby ocean-side walkway.
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.

. . . "My child has special needs and has done the TRYathlon for the last 4 years. He does it because he can, because he is treated like everyone else and he is so proud when he gets out of his wheelchair to walk the last little bit to cross the line.”
