Ready to ride like a Norse God? Time to prove it. It’s not your typical race—not just anybody can do it. This is a no-nonsense, extreme triathlon that chews people up and leaves them in the cold.
It’s next-level stuff. After five hardcore weeks of group workouts, rides, and runs, the Norseman Festival of Climbing Series culminates in six days of intense races. These workouts aim to build your climbing strength. They’re sure to put you through the wringer, breaking you down before building you back up into tip-top, race-ready shape. And you’ll love every step of the way.
Then come the races. Boldly go the distance and finish any of them to earn the Norseman White jersey. Want the iconic Norseman Black jersey, too? Complete a race in Group A (the longer route) on August 7 (for bike) or August 8 (for run), and they’re all yours plus a chance to win one of two entries to Norseman 2022 in Europe.
Norseman is a tribute to triathlon, where you bring your best friends and family to join the party. You bring them as your support. As your safe haven. You join together as a team, where your best friend is the one handing you the bottle that helps you up another climb.
And when you get to the finish line, whether it’s on Gaustatoppen or Gaustablikk, your hard work and effort will get rewarded—with their approval of your success and a T-shirt.
But most important of all, you can claim the title of a true triathlete: You are a Norseman.
