children to get moving in a friendly and supportive environment where the emphasis is on enjoying the experience as part of an active lifestyle rather than competition.  

MBF Foundation Steering Committee Chair, and Chief Medical Officer for Bupa Australia, Dr Christine Bennett said the world record achievement shows that kids are really getting motivated to exercise regularly and stay active.

“We are committed to helping improve the health of the nation by fostering improved fitness and better nutrition habits.  The Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon series is a fun way for kids to experience the benefits of exercise and is a great way for the whole family to get active,” Dr Bennett, a paediatrician and mother of four, said.

The International Triathlon Union said it was delighted to see kids across the country do something most sporting stars dream of – smashing a world record!

“Triathlon’s ethos as ‘a sport for all’ is reflected in this amazing world record success. We would like to thank Sanitarium and the event organisers for their hard work in making these events happen,” said Loreen Barnett, Secretary General of the International Triathlon Union.

The Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is presented in partnership by Sanitarium Weet-Bix and the MBF Foundation and supported by official sponsors Sunrise, Eveready, Speedo, Malvern Star, Australia Post, Band-Aid, Rosebank, Banana Boat, Capilano, Supersport Images and Toll.
