Due to overwhelming demand, the Hibiscus Coast Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon has sold out. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept on the day entries.

The Hibiscus Coast Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Manly Park in Whangaparaoa. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg 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 Transition area is located in Manly Park. The bike leg is around the streets surrounding Manly Park, and the run leg is around Manly 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.

Follow us for updates!
Remember to join your Hibiscus Coast 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.

See you next year
