Local kids give it a try at West Auckland Kids’ TRYathlon

Hundreds of West Auckland children swam, cycled & ran their way to the finish line as part of the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon in December. The popular kids’ event was held at Keith Hay Park.  The Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is designed for Kiwi kids aged 7-15 years to help them stay active and healthy through a programme of participation. The series has been running since 1992 and is a rite of passage for Kiwi kids, to date over 300,000 Kiwi kids have given it a TRY, and this season over 35,000 participants are expected to have taken part. The iconic sporting event introduces thousands of New Zealand children to organised sport, in a positive environment which encourages them to lead active lifestyles.
