Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon Training Sessions

14 January 2014

There’s some fun ‘boot camp’ training going on at Wellington City pools and recreation centres for kids participating in the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon.

Children on bikes.

Kids practise their bike skills


The event is being held at Kilbirnie Park on Sunday 23 March, and we’re helping to get kids ready with some great training sessions.

At Keith Spry Pool our TRI NZ-accredited coach will help kids to get on top of wave starts, pack swimming, transitions (swim to bike), bike skills, run drills and course tactics.

These sessions are on 21 January, 9 and 23 February, with a Dash and Splash event on 2 March.

At ASB Sports Centre, training days are on this Friday and 28 January for swimming, cycling and running. Swim training starts tomorrow at Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre. Weekly half-hour sessions for all age groups participating in the triathlon are on until 19 March. All abilities are welcome. One-on-one classes are also available.

Swim training is also on at Tawa Pool from 7 February and Karori Pool from 9 February. Tawa Pool offers transition training on 9 March.
