School Groups

School group registrations do not carry over from year to year, so you will need to apply to enter a school group into the 2017/2018 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon series even if you took part last year.

Create Your School Group

Your students can join your school’s group either by completing a permission form and returning this to the school group coordinator or by choosing to link to your school group when registering from home.
