Due to overwhelming demand, the Bay of Islands Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon has sold out.

The Bay of Islands Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Waitangi, adjacent to the Treaty Grounds. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg at Te Tii Bay in the ocean. 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 opposite the Waitangi Copthorne Hotel The bike leg is across the bridge towards Paihia and on the roads surrounding Te Tii Marae, and the run leg is around Waitangi adjacent to the Treaty Grounds. You can download our course map from the Maps tab below to see the full routes. The best areas for parking will be announced in our event information emails to registered participants and on our Facebook page closer to the event date.

Follow us for updates!
Remember to join your Bay of Islands TRYathlon event page on Facebook! We’ll be posting updates about your TRYathlon in the lead up to your event day that you won’t want to miss out on.

We create a safe environment where kids can focus on enjoying time with friends on the course or in activities around the TRYathlon 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.


85% 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.

“A huge sense of achievement, able to share this achievement with others by having the medal, t-shirt etc, to show them. They love being active so this was a great extension of their interests, especially doing 3 disciplines together.”
