The Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is heading back to the Gold Coast celebrating 21 years on Sunday 5th May, giving local kids the chance to "unleash their healthy potential".
No matter your abilities or experience, the TRYathlon is sure to be fun for everyone involved, promoting healthy outdoor activities and rewarding every participant for just having a go.
This year's Gold Coast ambassador, former Olympic gold medal winning swimmer Libby Trickett, said the highlight of the event for her is seeing the kids cross the finish line, cheered on by family, friends and onlookers.
“Self-doubt, whether you’re an adult or a kid, it’s what stops us from reaching our potential – and we want every Aussie kid to reach theirs. That’s what the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is all about... If the TRYathlon goes any way towards instilling in [kids] a love of physical activity and giving the next generation of Aussies a positive voice inside their head that says, ‘I can do it’, then that’s powerful.”
