After considering feedback on the 2023 TRYathlon format and reviewing our overall event schedule, the Energy Breakthrough Education Team have liaised with schools to develop a NEW TRYathlon schedule for the Energy Breakthrough for 2024.

This new schedule aims to:

  • Create more cohesion between activities.
  • Create more excitement and celebration opportunities for the students and teachers.
  • Improve communication points between teams and officials.
  • Improve safety.

Summary of Changes:

In summary, the changes from the 2023 edition are:

  • THURSDAY: Move the TRYathlon Secondary assessments from Friday morning to Thursday afternoon.FRIDAY: Move the Time Trial from the ‘top loop’ of Track 1 to Track 2.
  • FRIDAY: Combine the Time Trial and Obstacle activities for TRY Secondary and Primary on the Friday (in 2023 they were split between categories) to improve the atmosphere. Teams will still participate against students their own age.
  • FRIDAY: Introduce new obstacles for the Obstacle challenge.
  • FRIDAY: Moved the Awards Ceremony for the TRY Primary teams closer to the end of the Time Trial.
  • ENDURANCE: Wave the chequered flag for the TRY Secondary teams on the BACK STRAIGHT at the conclusion of their 8 hours and marshal them near the BBQ shelter skate park for the Awards Ceremony. We hope this creates a fun ‘celebration’ time for teams to enjoy the end of their Energy Breakthrough challenge for 2024.
  • ENDURANCE: Created a safe crossing time and location for TRYathlon teams to exit during the 24 Hour Trial.
  • OVERALL: Added in some extra Team Manager Meeting times at the end of the existing briefings specifically for TRYathlon Team Managers to improve communication.

We would like to thank the TRYathlon schools for their patience as we revised this model. Invoices for entries will now be issued to the schools
