Get set for another deep dive into all things swim, bike and run in the latest edition of Triathlon Quarterly.  


The 3rd edition of Tri NZ’s in-house digital magazine has the sport, the long and short of it, covered from every angle with an Ironman 70.3 Taupo and Tri NZ Suzuki Series theme running through the issue.

Our cover star, Dr Dan Plews, has advice to help you not only qualify for, but also perform at, the Ironman 70.3 Worlds on the Central Plateau in 13 months time. Who better to dish out advice than the fastest Iron distance age grouper ever?

Rolling with the endurance tri, we ask who is winning the arms race for long distance triathlon’s biggest pro names – and all those lucrative age group limpets – in our PTO v Ironman feature in Racing.

Short course fans won’t want to miss our WTCS Report Cards where the coaches of NZ’s elites give their assessments of the season just past. Napier’s surprise inclusion on the World Triathlon calendar for 2024 also gets the full treatment, as do Tinman and OxMan, the two remaining pre-Christmas Tri NZ Suzuki Series events. Lachlan Haycock’s Tinman defence and Matt Payne’s OxMan journey are equal parts frightening and inspiring.  

There’s a handy Beginner’s Gear Guide, training, and nutrition tips and much more in TQ3 which again packs serious punch with the thud-factor of 138 digitally enhanced pages.

As ever, it is FREE for all so be sure to share with your friends around New Zealand and the world and let them know they can also find archived editions of TQ1 and TQ2.

*The team at TQ recommends viewing on a tablet or desktop for the most immersive experience.
