The swim runs parallel to the beach. Tryathletes are generally able to stand up during the swim; but we encourage everyone to give swimming a go! The transition area is located up the beach, on the fields nearby, and the bike and run legs are around the field and surrounding streets which are completely closed to traffic and well marshaled by our fantastic group of volunteers.

As a series, it is the world's largest sporting event for kids and is New Zealand's premier kids sporting event. The Nelson leg of the series regularly attracts 1700+ participants.
