Norseman 2020

Mountains and mountains and more mountains. Go big from home in the Norseman Festival of Climbing. Finish the toughest event of the week and be entered for a chance to win an entry to next year’s legendary tri event.


Join your fellow triathletes for a festival of grueling rides and runs that will push you to new heights. Hard work pays off, as completion of the monster Uber Pretzel route adds you to our lottery for a ticket to Norseman 2021. Win an entry, and you’ll compete with the most hardcore triathletes on the planet. 


Throughout the week, enjoy a mix of 5km and 10km run events. Sunday is the big run day, with race options of either a half marathon or a full marathon. Complete either distance on Aug. 2 to permanently unlock the iconic Norseman black run shirt.


Make sure you pack your climbing legs, whatever event you choose to do the roads will be heading uphill.


Complete the Saturday ride event to unlock the Norseman jersey. Finish the Sunday run to unlock the exclusive shirt.

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 our 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.
