Introducing even more ways for Aussie kids to give it a TRY

Entry now open for the 2020 Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon – don’t miss early bird pricing!

Now in its 22nd year, the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is accepting entries for another series with 10 events to be held around Australia from February to July 2020.

The Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is designed for children aged 7 to 15, no matter their sporting ability or experience. It aims to help Aussie kids build self-esteem and resilience by providing an age-appropriate physical challenge in fun and friendly environment which rewards everyone for just ‘giving it a TRY!’ Register for the event here.

Swim, cycle, run (or walk!)

The TRYathlon swim leg is divided by age and gender into small groups at the start. Younger kids in the 7 - 10 age group do a 75m swim, 3km cycle and 500m run. Older kids aged 11 - 15 do a 150m swim, 6km cycle and 1km run. Some kids like to smash it out, while others will take it easy. Either way, it doesn’t matter – the focus is on completing not competing!

Besties do it best

Amp up the fun and enter as a team of two – it’s a great option for first timers. One child completes the swim, the other child completes the cycle, and both children complete the run together. In some cases siblings will be able to pair up, with junior (7-10 years) and senior (11-15 years) team entries available.

No bike, no worries

This year’s series will see the national introduction of a ‘Splash & Dash’ for children as young as 6 to join in the fun. Organisers hope the new swim-and-run event will mean even more Aussie kids get to experience the camaraderie and finish line feeling that only TRYathlon delivers.

Sydney 2nd February Perth 22nd March
Canberra 9th February Adelaide 5th April
Central Coast 16th February Gold Coast 3rd May
