The organisers of the Ironman UK event in Bolton – now in its 13th year contacted EFS, once again, to provide a safe and secure transfer area from the swimming to cycling stages. Temp-A-Path was installed for this critical element of the event. Following a 2.4 mile open water swim the athletes leave the lake and transfer to their bikes for a 112 mile cycle ride followed by a full marathon! So it was vital that the transition area was made safe under foot when covered in water with athletes "sprinting" over it. Over 200m² of Temp-A-Path was installed by the team to create a safe and secure under foot surface from the lakeside to the transition area. This extreme sporting event attracted around 2000 athletes from around the globe. Frenchman, Cyril Viennot, won the race for the men whilst in the women's Lucy Gossage, 6 x Ironman champion won again. Jeremy Simpson – Business Development Manager of EFS commented: "With such a demanding high profile athletic event, we knew that it was vital for our product to stand up to the critical demands of the terrain and weather conditions. We were delighted to be involved and to see great performances from these talented athletes."
