Rich to complete Guinness World Record Attempt Indoor Ironman and raise $10,000

In 2004, lifelong Boston resident Tony Rich walked into the Oak Square YMCA for the first time to become a member and begin his goal of becoming an Ironman Triathlete. Comprised of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and 26.2 mile marathon without stopping. Since then he's completed over 100 long course endurance events including over 30 Marathons, numerous triathlons and other endurance events including 3 full Ironman distance triathlons. One of them being the Indoor Ironman he completed in July of 2011. He swam 169 lengths in the pool, biked 112 miles on a computrainer and did a treadmill marathon in 10 hours and 13 minutes. All to benefit the Oak Square YMCA Reach Out Campaign. The event raised over $6,000.

Now Tony has his sights on an even bigger goal in an effort to bring more support to the Reach Out Campaign. On August 3, 2013 at 7:00am Rich, now a 9 year member, masters swim and triathlon coach at the Oak Square YMCA, he will attempt the the Guinness World Record for the fastest time to complete an indoor Ironman, and seek to raise $10,000 for Reach Out, the Y's financial assistance fund!

Each year, the Oak Square YMCA provides nearly $300,000 in financial aid to strengthen its community and help its neighbors of all ages and abilities live healthier, more active live. "Thanks to the generosity of the Y," Kamala D., another longtime member says, "We've truly been enabled to make fitness and fun an integral part of our family's daily life. It has become a second home, and we've been exposed to a multitude of enriching experiences we would otherwise never been able to afford." Such an impact in the community simply would not be possible without the support of dedicated Y members and volunteers like Rich: "Helping the people in need in my own community is a cause very important to me," he states.

Rich also wants to complete the event and raise the funds in memory of his mother who passed away in her sleep 6 years ago at age 67 from complications from cardiovascular and heart disease. After completing his first Ironman in Florida and celebrating over the phone with his mom, he hung up the phone not knowing that it would be the last time he would speak with her. She passed away just 4 days later. Tony believes that the Reach Out campaign brings critical and lasting health and wellness benefits to communities so that situations similar to what happened with his mom are mitigated.

Tony must complete the event in under 8 hours which means he must take over two hours off his 2011 indoor Ironman time and satisfy the requirements of set forth by Guinness World Records. A monumental task to say the least but Rich thinks he can do it with the combine efforts and support of his training community and the Oak Square YMCA.

In addition to scheduling a time to bike or run with Tony, The Oak Square YMCA and Tony Rich encourage the community to support Tony by visiting the Oak Square YMCA fundraising page and donating to the 2013 Reach Out Campaign. With the generous donation of products and services from our sponsors, the YMCA will host a silent auction leading up to and ending on the day of the Indoor Ironman, August 3, 2013. For more information on how to get involved, or to donate items for the silent auction please contact Christopher Rule at or 617.787.8678.
