Children’s ‘tryathlon’ (1st of 3)

Children’s ‘tryathlon’

The Weet-Bix ‘tryathlon’, held throughout New Zealand, encourages children to become physically active. This is the 2007 Devonport event. As well as swimming up to 200 metres, competitors run a short distance and cycle several kilometres to complete the tryathlon. The emphasis is on trying one’s best and having a go.
