THIS weekend should have been one of the biggest highlights in Bolton's sporting calendar.

Thousands of athletes from across the globe were set to descend on Bolton this weekend to take part in the annual Ironman UK competition.

But coronavirus restrictions mean the event has been put on hold for a year, but we don’t want all the hard training to go to waste.

That’s why we’re asking people to set their own challenges this weekend and send us their pictures.

Whether it’s running a 5k, 10k, or children running a 1k - the equivalent of the Ironkids competition - we want to see pictures of people smashing their goals as we keep the Ironman spirit alive in Bolton this year.
