The Hamilton Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at the University of Waikato fields in Hamilton East. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg in the outdoor pool at University of Waikato. The pool is 50m in length, with a depth of 0.9m in the shallow end and 1.4m in the deep end. The Transition area is located on the University of Waikato fields a short distance from the pool. The bike leg is around the streets surrounding the University of Waikato fields, and the run leg is around the field itself.
