Bolton to stay as home of Ironman UK
Ironman have announced that the full 226km distance Ironman UK will remain in Bolton, Greater Manchester, until 2022. Bolton will also continue to host the world’s biggest Ironkids event, with 2,500 children participating annually.
The announcement comes off the back of a 2017 event, won by Lucy Gossage and Cyril Viennot, which saw over 2,000 athletes finish the 3.8km swim, 180km bike and 42.2km run finishing in the Bolton town centre. Since moving to Bolton in 2009, the race has grown from 1,500 athletes to over 2,500 each year.
