Despite already achieving an incredible 36 consecutive half Ironmans, Layne persists in his efforts to raise funds and awareness for the CF Community.


His dedicated page, along with the advocacy initiatives he engaged in and the stories he shared, will be preserved here for those seeking information, inspiration, or wishing to contribute. We express deep gratitude to Layne for choosing to support Cystic Fibrosis Australia; he will forever be a valued member of our community.

about Layne Storrier

Layne is a 24yr old who’s story isn’t too unfamiliar to many other young Australians. Growing up, Layne fell into the pattern of working throughout the week, then partying all weekend. Whilst Layne always knew he was made for more, he was stuck in the mindset that ‘if all my friends were doing this, then why shouldn’t I?’.


As Layne got more involved with running, he met Bradley Dryburgh, who not only runs marathons but also lives with cystic fibrosis (CF). Bradley shared what life with CF was like, and through this new friendship, Bradley supported Layne’s new-found interest in running, and Layne learned more about CF – an illness he was surprised, and had never heard of before.


Layne is now training hard to complete 36 half Ironman’s over 36 days this September-October, to raise vital funds and increase awareness of Cystic Fibrosis.


Whilst Layne will be taking on 36 Half Ironman’s, he wants Australia to help get behind him – whether that is partaking in your own version of the challenge, cheering him on from the sidelines, or sharing words of encouragement via his Instagram, we can all be a part of this incredible achievement!

Layne's Goals

  • Raise $100,000
  • Increase awareness of cystic fibrosis
  • Complete 36 Half Ironman’s over 36 Consecutive days
  • Inspire others that anything is possible

Each day of Layne’s challenge, he would like to dedicate his efforts to the incredible people who have faced CF. To share your story, please email

A Message From Layne

Howdy everyone! Here is a timeline of when and where I will be starting each leg of my half ironman challenge each day. I’ll be kicking off the first day on Friday, September 1st. I hope to see you all getting after it by swimming, riding and running with me, or cheering me on from the sidelines, while I am in the hurt locker!


See below for more details:

🏊 Join me for an early morning swim at Centenary Aquatic centre or cheer me on from pool deck! Don’t forget your goggles and a towel!


🚴‍♂️ Ride with me out to Redcliffe and back (about a 3.5 hour loop). The ride will be starting from the back of the Stafford City carpark. The best parking is outside the Cafe 63, behind the shopping centre.


🏃 The run will also be meeting in the same location as the ride (so if anyone wants to do both legs, I’ve made it easy for you haha).


🥪 Remember to bring water and snacks to keep you fuelled!


🚗There is plenty of free parking at both locations 😊


Thanks for all of your support so far! I am so ready to dig in for Cystic Fibrosis Australia.
