Helping kids gear up for the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon

Friendly courier experts, Fastway Couriers is helping kids to gear up for the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon series by delivering thousands of registration packs to participants. As an official service provider, Fastway Couriers depots across the country will transport TRYathlete kits containing a t-shirt, an event-day bib and other merchandise.

This year, approximately 17,900 kids in Australia are expected to take part in 11 events held across Australia between January and May.

The Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is a series of non-competitive events run by Sanitarium Health and Wellbeing Company that encourages kids to be more physically active. The community engagement programme aims to help kids across the country develop self-esteem, improve confidence and achieve their personal best, while having fun with friends.

Richard Thame, CEO at Fastway Couriers says:

“At Fastway Couriers, our franchisees are always active, so we’re proud to support the Weet-bix Kids TRYathlon series that encourages kids across Australia to do the same. With Fastway Couriers’ national network of parcel delivery franchises, we’re able to deliver a TRYathlete kit to each child, to ensure they’re geared up and ready to go for their local event.”

Each location will host two TRYathlons for children aged seven to 15. For kids between seven and 10 years old, the event includes a 75m swim, 3km cycle and 500m run, before crossing the finish line. For 11 to 15 year olds, the event incorporates a 150m swim, 6km cycle, and concludes with a 1km run.
