Run, Cycle, Swim?
So is this the first ever flier (way back from 1974) the first bit of advertising for the first ever triathlon.
You can take a closer look at it by clicking on the link: View this photo .
It was sent to us by Danny Ward our British Bureau Chief who got it by way of Jack Johnstone.
And if you don't know who Jack Johnstone is just click HERE for a full explanation of the newsletter and flier as well as the history of the sport of triathlon. As far as we know EverymanTri (EMT) is one of the very first and so far only places to publish this unique bit of triathlon history.
So thanks Danny and thanks Jack for a great reminder of how it all began. And yes it still seems like the swim should be last.
