Bowater Toyota are really proud to be associated for yet another year in one of the countries most important sporting events in the calendar, the Weetbix Tryathlon.
Every year, as summer winds down, the Nelson leg of this epic right of passage swings into town, and thousands of local kids get to realise a dream, and learn for themselves that not only does hard work pay off, but also that giving it a crack is one of life's most important lessons.
The turnout at the 2012 20th Annual Weetbix Tryathlon held at Tahuna Playing Field was another solid success, with a great turnout and lots of very happy kids!
For 20 years now this great community event has been changing lives, and inspiring generations of kids to be a part of the energy of youth. To channel that excited and give it a go. Everyone on the day gets a gold medal, but most importantly everyone on the day gets amazing amounts of encouragement to just do their best. This is not a race, there are no winners, just a field of very happy faces.
We went along last year and had a great time. You can see photos from the day on our Facebook page buried deep in last year (click here, it's easier).
This year the event is going to be held on Sunday March 10th at the Tahuna Sports Field. We very much look forward to seeing heaps of you, and your kids down there.
