Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon 2019
TRYathletes swim in an Olympic-sized pool and cycle on the surrounding closed-roads before running through the parklands around the Adelaide Aquatic Centre.
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 & 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 7-15 years of age.
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.
Event Kit delivery closes on Friday 22 March 2019. Participants must be registered by Sunday 31 March 2019 to be eligible to win on-the-day prizes.
Distances (approx.) by age groups:
Ages 7-10: Swim 75m, Cycle 3km, Run 500m
Ages 11-15: Swim 150m, Cycle 6km, Run 1km
