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.
