Sport Tasman has been associated with the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon since the mid 1990's. The Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is a kiwi institution and has been running for 25 years. As a series, it is the world's largest sporting event for kids (as certified by the International Triathlon Union) and is New Zealand's premier kids sporting event. The Nelson leg of the series regularly attracts 1700+ participants.


The Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon in Nelson is located at the beautiful Tahunanui Sands Reserve. It starts on Tahunanui Beach, with a short swim in the ocean. This swim runs parallel to the beach. Tryathletes are generally able to stand-up during the short ocean swim; however, we do encourage everyone to give swimming a go! The transition area is located up the beach, on the fields nearby, and the bike and run legs of the Tryathlon are around the field and surrounding streets which are completely closed to traffic and well marshaled by our fantastic group of over 100 enthusiastic volunteers.Over the past 24 years more than 200,000 New Zealand children have participated in the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon, including sporting stars Debbie Tanner, Alison Shanks and Andrea Hewitt at the start of their careers.
