About the event

The Bolton Fun Triathlon started life in 2012 as part of a nationwide scheme to encourage and support NHS staff to become more active. The event originally took place in the town of Horwich and was only open to NHS staff. The original course included a particularly challenging run and bike course!
Over the following few years the event opened up its entries to allow more people to join join the fun!
In 2017 the triathlon changed format and became part of the Horwich Festival of racing and included a closed road 1k bike circuit.
For 2019 our race is relocating to a new venue with new bike and run routes. The emphasis for this year will still remain putting on a race which is welcoming and friendly as well as offering a challenge for the more competitive competitor. This year the event is open to everyone.
