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.

“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.”
