The Nelson Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Tahunanui Recreation Ground. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg on Tahunanui Beach 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 on the recreation fields. The bike leg is around the streets surrounding Tahunanui Recreation Ground, and the run leg is around Tahunanui Recreation 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.

What a beautiful day at Tahunanui Recreation Ground. It was so good to see parents and kids enjoying the day together! It was a wonderful effort from all of the TRYathletes and it was great to see the big smiles at their sense of achievement!
