Triathlon Australia Collection

Date range

1990 to 1995


This file contains the 1995 advertisement for an editor/publisher for "The ultimate challenge" magazine and a quote from "The Print Run" to print the magazine.

The original paste up of the layout for the first issue is included, accompanied by a note from Brian Chapman about the cause of the water/smoke damage seen on the pages.

The paste up edition of the magazine contains the items seen in later editions of the magazine; an address from the president of TAQ, Barry Hawkins, a Qld race calendar, the results of various events, the details and contacts of Queensland clubs, sponsors and commercial advertisements.

Dr Hunt used these documents in her research for the book Multisport dreaming: The foundations of triathlon in Australia published in 2014.
