Kids Tryathlon Letter for Parents:

Dear Parents,

Entries are open for the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon – Bay of Islands on Sunday, 7 April 2019 at Waitangi – Adjacent to the Treaty Grounds.

The TRYathlon is all about giving it a TRY and is a rewarding and fun day out for you and your child. Participants need to be aged 7-15 years old on event day, and can complete the TRYathlon as an individual or in a team of two.

Our school has created a School Group which you can join when you enter from home. Search for Kaikohe Christian School when prompted. By linking to our school group it will give us the chance to win some great prizes.

The direct link to register into our school group is https://www.registernow.com.au/secure/Register.aspx?E=31852&G=82336

If you are unable to register at home then I can help at school but please let me know early if this is the case.

If someone you know requires financial assistance to enter the TRYathlon, through either subsidized entry fees or funding for necessary equipment, then you can apply to the Weet-Bix TRYathlon Foundation for assistance. Visit www.tryathlon.co.nz/foundation for details.

All competitors must have their own bike and helmet in order to take part. It is important that the bike is in good working order with both brakes attached and working. There is a very good bike shop in Kerikeri if parts and/or repairs are required. Please don’t leave this check to the last minute.

On race day, the school gazebo shall be set up to store belongings etc. and I shall be present to help where needed. I request that you come to the school gazebo upon your arrival to let me know that you have arrived and are taking part. Please leave plenty of time for your arrival as the roads become very busy and the Waitangi bridge will be shut at 8:15am.

If you have any school-related questions please contact me at davidp@kcs.school.nz otherwise contact the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon team; email tryathlon@sanitarium.co.nz or phone 0800 WEET BIX (0800 9338 249).
