Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My name is Brian Armstrong, an Alternatives member of staff, and I am attempting to set a new world record and I would like your support. I am aiming to complete 50 Half-Distance Triathlons in ONE Calendar year. This consists of the following: 

  • A half distance triathlon consists of a 1.2-mile swim. 

  • A 56-mile cycle. 

  • A 13.1-mile run.  

In one of these alone I will travel 70.3 Miles. The current world record is 24 held by Michael Mendoza. 

I am aiming to raise funds for Alternativesmental health and counselling services this is a community based therapeutic service helping people at their point of need. The aim is to develop this into a unique service where we can work with a person's mental health and addictions at the same time. 

Alternatives works with some of the most vulnerable and at-risk groups of people and through my work, I have witnessed high levels of trauma, addiction and poor mental health that ravages these communities. 

I want to use the Tri50 challenge to help raise money for the mental health service within Alternatives.

When I achieves my goal, I will have: 

  • Swam a total of 60 Miles. 

  • Cycled a total of 2,800 Miles. 

  • Ran 655 Miles.  

A total journey of Three Thousand Three Hundred and Fifteen MILES.  

Exercise has helped change my life. If I can push myself to do these amazing things it will encourage others to also push themselves beyond what they currently see as their limits. As part of the Tri50, I want to encourage those who doubt their ability to achieve goals in life by asking them to come and take part in some way in this massive challenge. I want the funds raised through this challenge to help provide mental health services at a community level. 

If you would like to be involved, please email or call 02890311420.  

We are grateful for your support,
