IronMan UK Bolton 2022 - July 3rd

‘Your My Favorite’ :sweat_smile:

I am in, with some kind of priority entry link or other.
Regular entries for numpTs are not yet available but will be soon
How chuffin much!! :grimacing:

I personally hope the bike course isn’t emasculated (ooh big word for making it less hilly), as the ‘rewarding’ :roll_eyes: course out Bury way is a classic :heart_eyes:

Who’s in? Is Poet bringing his tub disc again :sweat_smile:


Entries straight in at tier 3?

probably or maybe 4 now?? as it came to £501 FGS after Active added their hefty cut :grimacing: :grimacing:

Tubular front, too.

No prior issues at all :+1:t3:

I won’t be there for that price :raised_hand:t5::stop_sign:

Bike course looks like it’ll be the same as this year, hopefully with less casualties

yes I almost choked on my reduced sandwich

and less NumpTs :stuck_out_tongue:


Been thinking about this… Alot.

I’m in through deferral, crash, X-rays, Ill health , everything bar alien abduction in the month before.

If I feel the way I do now, I won’t do it.

Swim progression at my age and limited ability is rare, but was very welcome and I did some very good runs in the last few months, which more importantly felt … easy ish.

I detest that bike course.

I really really don’t feel safe on it, and that’s in the dry.

Too much turbo work, Oulton park, same continuous 6 mile loop that I train on… probably.

I’ll need a fraken bike of epic proportions to do that race.

I just basically have zero confidence cycling outside anymore … sad but true.


I’m 90% doing this. No Cork or Wales as they’ll have full fields of deferrals. Travel will still be dodgy I think - so Outlaw or this if I want branded/KQ possibility.

Priority link expires in 5 days, decision by then.


Will you have to validate Kona again?
I thought you’d deferred to 2022?

qualifying at Bolton would be for 2022, not 2023.

Not for me, but good chance of being in for 2023

Hey everyone, I’m wondering if anyone can help me get in touch with Ironman UK, please?

I signed up for Ironman 2020, now due to take place in 2022, but have missed the registration cut off. The reason for this being - when I went to register, the photo package that I had originally purchased was not listed as being included, therefore I emailed Ironman (several times) to ask them to clarify that this was included before I completed registration. Now I can’t even access the registration link as the cut off (31st Aug) has passed … and still no response from Ironman :anguished:

Please can someone help??

give em a ring.

Thank you for this, I did call that number and each time I get through the ‘press 1 for…’ automated part, then the line goes dead :pensive:

I’ve just sent an email to, another ticket has been opened.

Is it worth writing to them, do you think? Getting very desperate now, fearing they won’t let me register.

Don’t worry.
They’ve changed.
This whole debacle has made them realise the athletes are their brand :+1:t3:

They’ll let you in.



Is this sarcasm? I seriously hope it’s true… but something tells me it isn’t :grimacing:

It’s true - I’m not being facetious or sarcastic for a change :see_no_evil::rofl:

I had nothing but good experiences on race day and after I DNFd, they were great :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Honestly, they’ve really changed.
And for the better.


laughing at Fe man changing
