We want to raise awareness of mental health and it’s effects on us and our lives. We want to start breaking the stigma of mental health and allow people to feel as free to talk about what they are feeling as someone would feel about talking about a broken arm or a set of stitches.

We feel it is very important to get out and get some exercise. So important we are going to give away shirts for people that do it. One of the core workouts for a triathlete is called a brick. It is a workout that consists of a bike ride then, immediately after, a run, but a brick is also someone that has done something amazing, or been there for someone else.

Managing mental health takes a lot of effort and we want to applaud all those that live amazing lives despite their challenges. So join us and be a brick to show your support!

To be a brick is very simple.

  1. You need to register
  2. Train, post training photos with the #wearetriing hash tag.
  3. On May 16th get out and do a brick so you can be a brick. If you are unable to go out, then you can do it inside. There are four distances.
