IRONKIDS UK is a run only-event for children aged 3-14. Part of a global series of events with over 50,000 participants, Bolton is home to the largest IRONKIDS event worldwide: over 3,500 young athletes will race through the streets of Bolton Town Centre, before finishing under the iconic IRONMAN finish gantry.
The event is participation focused and purely recreational, and so there are no prizes for the winning athletes - every child who completes the race will receive a finisher’s medal and finisher’s t-shirt.
There are different distances for each age group, relevant to the school year.
