Tell Us About Your Experience

This year we are asking you to complete two surveys.

The first survey is about your child and their experience of the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon – from your perspective as a parent or guardian.  If you had more than one child take part in this year’s event, we ask that you answer the questions in relation to one child in particular.  You can take the survey again if you’d like to provide answers for another child.

The second survey is about the TRYathlon in general and your experiences and how we can improve the TRYathlon for next year.

Due to the re-emergence of COVID-19 in the community (in Auckland) we have cancelled the [INSERT EVENT NAME HERE] Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon. Unfortunately, the event cannot be rescheduled.

The health and wellbeing of the community is our first priority and despite the additional safeguards and measures we have put in place for our TRYathlon events, there is now a heightened risk of further community transmission that we are unable to safely manage.

Over the last 6 months we have been planning for a number of scenarios, and whilst we are able to hold the TRYathlon under current Ministry of Health guidelines, we are taking a cautious approach given the uncertainty around the current COVID-19 outbreak, our event delivery team being largely Auckland based, the number of people that attend our event and the fact that we are unable to maintain physical distancing at our event.

We have a proud safety record and pride ourselves on delivering a quality event experience for our families which we do not wish to compromise.  We know that you and your child will be extremely disappointed but we hope that you understand.

Please check your email, where we have outlined your options according to your entry type.

Our Haier Help team will be on hand in the Transition area to assist them in getting changed and tying their shoelaces. Parents of Splash & Dash participants will be able to meet their child in Transition and assist with getting them ready for the run. Details on this will be shared in the event day guides and in the Splash & Dash event day briefing.
