Coming to North Shore City’s Narrowneck Beach Reserve on Sunday 21 March is the annual Weet-Bix Tryathlon – an exciting sporting event run by the Sanitarium Health Food Company. The event is all about participation and encourages young people to get out there, have a go and achieve a personal best.
Anyone between the ages of 7 and 15 years is invited to get involved in the Weet-Bix Tryathlon, which consists of a swim, followed by a cycle and a run. Because the event is non-competitive and designed to encourage participation, there are no place-getters, and every entrant receives a Weet-Bix Tryathlon race t-shirt and medal to celebrate their achievement.
You can enter as an individual – which means you swim, bike and run – or as part of a team, with team members sharing the different parts of the event. Teams can be made up of either two or three participants. For example, for a team of three, each team member will do one leg of the event (either swim or bike or run); or for a team of two, one of the participants will do two of the three legs (swim, bike, run) and the other the remaining leg. Your choice!
There are varying distances depending on your age. For 7 year olds there is a50m swim, 4km bike ride and 1.5km run. For 8 to 10 year olds there is a 100m swim, 4km bike ride and 1.5km run. And for 11 to 15 year olds there is a 200m swim, 8km bike ride and 1.5km run.
Entry to the Weet-Bix Tryathlon costs between $31 (with discount codes found in specially marked Weet-Bix 750g and 1kg packs) and $37 per person.To find out more about the North Shore event, taking place at Narrowneck Beach, visit www.weetbix.co.nz.
