The Christchurch Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Jellie Park in Burnside. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg in the heated outdoor pool at the Jellie Park Recreation & Sport Centre. The pool is 50m in length, with a depth of 1.1m in the shallow end and 1.5m in the deep end. The Transition area is located on the field outside of the pool complex. The bike leg is around the streets surrounding Jellie Park, and the run leg is around Jellie Park itself. 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.

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.
