From the fb page:

Quote:
Some changes ahead! No, not to IRONMAN UK but to our Facebook page. We're bringing together the Facebook communities around all our IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 events in England.

Over the next few days, this page will become the IRONMAN England page and will be joined by our IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire and IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth Facebook communities.

No action is required on your behalf. You‘ll be part of a bigger community and we‘ll continue to keep you up to date about IRONMAN UK AND all of our races in England.

I was hoping it was a prelude to a full distance IM Scotland

I guess because they also have IM Wales, it didn't make sense for Bolton to be called 'UK'.
