Due to overwhelming demand, the Dunedin Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon has sold out.

The Dunedin Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Memorial Park in Mosgiel. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg in the indoor pool at Mosgiel Pools. The pool is 25m in length, with a depth of 0.9m in the shallow end and 1.5m in the deep end. The Transition area is located a short distance from the pool in Mosgiel Park. The bike leg is around the streets surrounding Mosgiel Park, and the run leg is around Mosgiel Park itself. You can download our course map from the Maps tab below to see the full routes.

Follow us for updates!
Remember to join your Dunedin 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.

There will be plenty of free parking available on streets surrounding the event area.
