The West Auckland Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Henderson High School in Henderson. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg in the outdoor pool on school grounds. The pool is 25m in length. The Transition area is located on the school sports fields. The bike leg is around the streets surrounding Henderson High School and in Henderson Park, and the run leg is around the school field 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.

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.
1.A. Have your event kit? – Head towards Transition and look for the Check-In flags and tents.
At Transition, your bib will be scanned to check you in to the event and place you into the prize draw. You will then receive your Arena Swim Cap. Once you have checked in, you will keep moving through transition to position your bike with one parent if necessary to help you.
(Please note: more than one parent creates too much congestion in the Transition area).
While you’re in Transition, ask a Help Team volunteer to write your bib number on your arm and leg. This will help the photographers send you the right photos after the event and give the organisers another point of reference to check your details if necessary.
1.B. Don’t have your event kit? – Bring your confirmation email to the Admin Tent where you can collect your Event Kit and receive answers to any questions you may have.
Once you have received your event kit, make your way to Transition and look for the Check In flags and tents.
You will need to leave the following items in Transition:
Official Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon t-shirt with Bib Number attached to the front.
Bike with your event number sticker attached to the handle bars.
Helmet with your event number sticker attached to the front.
Running shoes and socks.
Any medication you may need use of during the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon (eg. asthma inhaler)
A box or something similar to put all your things in next to your bike.

After the prize-giving has been completed, general access to bikes in the Transition Area will be permitted. Several entries to transition will be created and security spot checks will be carried out by Transition HELP TEAM Marshals.
