Temp-A-Path helps the Brits sweep the board at 9th Annual IRONMAN UK

Posted: Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:10

The organisers of the Ironman UK event in Bolton– now in its ninth year contacted EFS when they need to provided a safe and secure transfer area from the swimming to cycling stages.  We recommended our Temp-A-Path® product as the most suitable product 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 followed by a full marathon!  So it was vital that we made the transition area 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 over 1,600 athletes from around the globe.  British athletes dominated the competition, for the men it was defending champion Dan Halksworth who took the honours whilst in the women’s Lucy Gossage won her first event. 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”.

Following the previous year’s torrential downpours at this iconic global event, we were asked to provide our Temp-A-Path® to protect the all important sales and merchandising areas within the historic Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit. Working on behalf of Roder Europe we supplied and installed 500m² of green Temp-A-Path® to blend in, protect the grounds and provide a firm footing for the thousands of spectators attending over the 4 days.  The marquee based trade stands attract high footfall and so it was critical for us to provide a safe platform for customers and staff alike.  Our product was installed as pathways in front of the many sales stands. Thankfully the heavy rain from the previous year’s British Grand Prix didn’t re-occur but Temp-A-Path® protected the grass area and was again the ideal solution.
