The Mount Maunganui Weetbix TRYathlon held at Arataki Park on Sunday is being hailed a success with a record number of entries this year.

A record 1400 children aged from seven to 15-years-old from around the Bay of Plenty entered this year's sell out event.

The course was tailored to each age group including a 50-150m swim at Baywave, a 4-8km cycle around the streets surrounding the park and a 1.5km run.

All participants received a medal on the finish line which were handed out by the events official ambassadors including Tauranga Olympic canoe slalom silver medallist Luuka Jones and retired New Zealand heptathlete and high jump champion Sarah Cowley-Ross.
