IRONMAN UK Race Update

We are committed to the safety and well-being of everyone in our race community in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been following and will continue to follow the direction and recommendations of public health agencies and local authorities. In alignment with Bolton Council and in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, we can confirm that the IRONMAN UK, IRONKIDS UK and Night Run Bolton originally scheduled for the July 10-12 weekend will not take place in 2020 and has been rescheduled to return on July 2-4, 2021.

In what has been a continually evolving and challenging time globally, we recognize that this decision due to the above-mentioned unforeseen events may come as a disappointment. Athletes will receive an email with further details.

While we are prevented from holding the event on the original event date, we are looking forward to providing athletes with an exceptional event experience in the future. We appreciate your patience in this very dynamic time.
