Due to overwhelming demand the Wellington Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon has sold out. We still have some spaces left at our Lower Hutt event on the 15th of March. Register now to avoid disappointment!

The Wellington Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Kilbirnie Park. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg in the heated indoor pool at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre where the pool is 50m in length. The Transition area is located a short distance from the pool in Kilbirnie Park. The bike leg is around the streets surrounding Kilbirnie Park, and the run leg is around Kilbirnie 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 Wellington 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.
