The Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon in Palmerston North is located at Ongley Park. The event starts with a short swim in the nearby Lido Aquatic centre's outdoor 50m pool. The Transition Area is located outside of the pool complex, on the fields nearby, and the bike and run legs of the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon 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.
