IRONMAN UK 2021 in pictures: Age-Group champions and winners

Who were the speedy amateur athletes at IRONMAN UK, Bolton, on Sunday? Here they are in pictures.

Sunday’s race saw a fantastic marathon comeback for Joe Skipper and another dominant display from Katrina Matthews to take the Professional race honours. You can find our more in our report and also our photo gallery.

Here, we focus upon the top performing age-group athletes. This includes, with great thanks once again to  Huw Fairclough (www.huwfaircloughphotography.co.uk)/ IRONMAN, pictures from the awards collection on Monday.

Unlike previous years, due to COVID restrictions, there were no podium awards in the usual manner, rather a time period within which the athletes could collect their trophies. Consequently, individual athlete photos rather than the complete podium this year. Hopefully we’ll be back to normal service in 12 months’ time.

Winners in pictures

Note (!) – I am missing a small number winners, having tried to match up the images with the results. So, apologies for that… but it is not because you are being ignored! If that’s you (Rosie Walsh, Tom Robertson and Ed Nicoll), then please do contact me via [email protected] if you have an image for me to include, as if we can complete the set below, my slight OCD tendencies will be very happy!

And with that, congratulations to your IRONMAN UK 2021 Age-Group champions:
