Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon 2020

TRYathletes swim in an Olympic-sized pool and cycle on the surrounding closed-roads before running through the parklands around the Adelaide Aquatic Centre.

EVENT POSTPONED: At Sanitarium, the health of our community is our top priority. With the increasing emergence of COVID-19 and in line with the Government’s position on mass gatherings, Sanitarium will be postponing the Adelaide event on Sunday 5th April. We are working to secure a new date from October through to December for the delivery of this event. We are closely consulting with venues and health authorities to ensure we can continue to run safe events for our TRYathletes and families to enjoy. We expect to be able to provide further clarity on a new date for those affected, by the end of March.

The Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is a non-competitive event. It is a community engagement program that assists kids to develop self esteem. Australia’s largest Kids TRYathlon series aims to encourage kids to get fit and active while having fun with their friends. The TRYathon is conducted along the lines of an adult triathlon, i.e: swim, ride and run in one event. The event is for kids aged 6-15 years of age (6 year olds don’t cycle)

Note that the format of the day is that kids will first do the Swim Leg, then the Cycle Leg, and finally the Run. When kids cross the finish line, an all-Australian sporting champion will be there to award them a medallion and they will receive a certificate too.

Every child, no matter their ability, is considered a champion and encouraged by Weet-Bix Kids TRY Heroes. A medallion is awarded for completion. There are Trek bikes, Funky Trunks/Funkita Prize Packs and ASICS Prize Packs and TRYathlon Merchandise Prize Packs up for grabs too.

Regular Entry Closes: midnight on Sunday 15 March 2020

Registration Closes: midnight on Wednesday 1 April 2020
