The Weetbix Kids TRYathlon series are 10 events held between February and May across Australia. Each event occurs on a Sunday morning with 1,500 – 2,500 children between 7-15yrs participating in mini triathlons. The focus of the series is to promote fun, fitness, and a healthy lifestyle in a non-competitive arena. Each event is very family friendly (3,000 – 6,000 spectators attend) with an interactive village area.
At this village area, the ASICS stand will have their full range of kids shoes on display, plus a few adult styles. Podiatrists are needed to offer some advice to parents about finding the best footwear for their child.
As volunteers will be giving up their Sunday morning, ASICS will be offering a free pair of ASICS shoes as a thank you to anyone able to assist. In addition, the families in attendance will be local to the event, so it is a great opportunity for podiatrists to promote their clinics.
Volunteers will be needed between 8am and 11am, but times can be flexible. Location and dates of events are as follows:
Sydney – Sunday 3rd February, Sydney Olympic Park.
Canberra – Sunday 10th February, Australian Institute Sport.
Central Coast – Sunday 17th February, Peninsula Leisure Centre, Woy Woy
Camden – Sunday 24th February, Onslow Park, Camden
