The Bay of Islands Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is located at Waitangi, adjacent to the Treaty Grounds. The TRYathlon will begin with the swim leg at Te Tii Bay in the ocean. TRYathletes are generally able to stand-up during the short swim, however we do encourage everyone to give swimming a go! The Transition area is located opposite the Waitangi Copthorne Hotel The bike leg is across the bridge towards Paihia and on the roads surrounding Te Tii Marae, and the run leg is around Waitangi adjacent to the Treaty Grounds. You can download our course map from the Maps tab below to see the full routes. The best areas for parking will be announced in our event information emails to registered participants and on our Facebook page closer to the event date.
