Ironman UK 2021 – Analyzing Results

IMUKLogoCourse Conditions

After some more course changes for this year’s race, it proved to be one of the slowest ever race in Bolton. At – 32 minutes it is comparable to what we’ve seen in the past at IM Wales. Even with the tough conditions, there was one new course record: Joe Skipper improved the run course record set by Aaron Farlow in 2011 – by exactly 2 seconds!

Kona Qualifying

IM UK offered two male and two female Kona Pro slots. As both Kat Matthews and Joe Skipper were already qualified, these slots are likely to be offered to:

  • Men: Sam Laidlow and Leon Chevalier
    and
  • Women: Nikki Bartlett and Chantal Cummings.

The final slot allocation and declines – if any – will be handled in the next few days. I will update this post when there are any changes. 

The full list of Kona Pro Qualifiers can be found on the “Kona 2021” page.
