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.
