Sanitarium Weetbix Kids Triatholon Palmerston Nth

Video: Sanitarium Weetbix Kids Triatholon Palmerston North 26 March, 2008

The Palmerston North Weet-Bix Tryathlon was on Sunday March 26th, and 1004 children from all over Palmerston North went to Esplanade/Lido Aquatic Centre to give it a go.

Registrations for the 16th Weet-Bix Tryathlon series are up on previous years, aided by the anticipated World Record attempt to be the largest children's triathlon in the world as sanctioned by the International Triathlon Union based in Canada.

Additionally, the Weet-Bix website has streaming footage from each event, recording every single child who crosses the finish line so they can capture their moment of glory on the world wide web.
