Camden Weetbix TRYathlon event makes a splash

Camden's second Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon has been hailed a success.

Almost 1000 kids took the opportunity to swim, cycle and run through town during the event.

All participants were awarded a medal by Weet-Bix ambassador and Socceroo legend Tim Cahill at the finish line.

Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli said it was fantastic to see so many families out and about enjoying the beautiful Camden town centre.

"Living a healthy and active lifestyle is important to do from a young age," Cr Fedeli said.

"It was great to see so many children swimming in Camden War Memorial Pool, cycling through closed suburban streets and finally running through the finish arch at Onslow Oval.

"The Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon will return to Camden in 2021 so I'm encouraging all children in our area to start training and get ready for another big event next year.

"This is a world class-event in the heart of our home and is a great opportunity to enjoy our facilities."

The second annual Camden Healthy Living Expo was held in conjunction with the TRYathlon at Onslow Oval, giving residents the chance to meet local health and well-being providers.

Young residents can take advantage of a number of council scheduled sports and activities throughout the year to get ready for next year's TRYathlon being offered at both Camden War Memorial Pool and Mount Annan Leisure Centre.

Camden will again host the event - which encourages children aged six to 15 years of age to try something new, have a go and enjoy being physically active - in 2021.
