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

The Hutt City Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at the Hutt Recreational Ground in Lower Hutt. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg in the heated indoor pool at Huia Pool where the pool is 25m in length. The Transition area is located a short distance from the pool in the Hutt Recreational Ground. The bike leg is around the streets surrounding the Hutt Recreational Ground, and the run leg is around the Hutt Recreational Ground 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 Hutt City 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.

We create a safe environment where kids can focus on enjoying time with friends on the course or in activities around the TRYathlon Village.


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.

“My son loved being part of the Triathlon, and seeing the amount of children participating and enjoying the day was inspirational”

Parent 2014/2015 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon

“Over all it was an extremely positive experience.”

Parent 2014/2015 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon

“I LOVED that no one was timed, or even CARED about who came first, because everyone went at different times. But he got a medal and he FINISHED! And it’s something his mum and dad haven’t even done, and he’s only 7! So great for his self-esteem.”
