The Central East Auckland Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Point England Reserve in Point England. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg on Pt England Beach in the ocean parallel to the beach. TRYathletes are generally able to stand-up during the short swim, however we do encourage everyone to give swimming a go! The bike leg is along Riverside Avenue and Dunkirk Road, and the run leg is around Point England Reserve itself. You can download our course map from the Event Day Info tab 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.

Remember to join your Central East Auckland 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.
