Due to overwhelming demand the South Auckland Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon has sold out.

Registrations are still open for our 3 remaining Auckland events:

The South Auckland Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Mountfort Park in Manurewa. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg in the indoor pool at the Manurewa Pool & Leisure Centre. The pool is 25m in length, with a depth of 1m in the shallow end and 1.35m in the deep end. The Transition area is located on the field behind the Manurewa Pool & Leisure Centre. The bike leg is around the streets surrounding Mountfort Park, and the run leg is around Mountfort Park itself. You can download our course map from the Event Day Info tab 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 South Auckland 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.
