The Norseman 2019
Completed

This is the Isklar Norseman. 

It’s not your typical triathlon—not just anybody can do it. This is a no-nonsense, Ironman-distance race that chews people up and leaves them in the cold. It’s a challenge very few will complete. Think you’re one of them?

Last year, we held an in-game competition to find Zwifters who can hang with the demands of the Norseman. This year, we’re doing it again. One week of in-game races that’ll push you to the limit and dare you to push back. Most will fail. You might be one of them. 

But if you’ve got what it takes, if you think an ice-cold 2.5-mile swim, a 112-mile ride up a mountain, and a marathon finish at the peak sound like a good time...well then. Maybe it is for you. 

IS THIS A RACE? 

Yes and no. There’s nothing waiting on the other side of first place—aside from bragging rights—but you’ll still want to step on the gas and push yourself because, well, everyone else is.

ABOUT NORSEMAN

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, if it is 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
