England’s largest Ironman weekend is back in Bolton between Friday, July 1 and Sunday, July 3 and athletes of all ages and abilities will be hoping for the fantastic support Bolton is famous for.

There will be loads going on in the town centre and Queens Park to make it a great day for supporters and spectators.

On July 1 and 2, head to the town centre to cheer on the night runners and Ironkids.

On Sunday 3rd, you can support the Ironman UK athletes all around the course. In the town centre, Le Mans Crescent and Queens Park are good spots to cheer from as the athletes can be seen multiple times, not to mention the incredible finish line on Victoria Square.

Spectator hotspots along the bike course are Smithills Dean Road, with a farm, café, family activities, parking and a footpath for safe viewing, and Egerton village with local shops, pubs and restaurants at the foot of a long descent.

A festival zone in the town centre will feature music, street performers, food, drink and a bar. The family fun zone nearby will keep children happy with face painting, a climbing wall, fairground games, football, a caving bus, arts and crafts and of course ice cream.

As athletes run through Queens Park on Sunday there will also be a pop-up music stage featuring local artists.
