Norseman xtreme triathlon
A point to point, non-Ironman branded, triathlon race held in Norway annually.
The distances are equivalent to those of an Ironman race.
Swim starting from the loading bay of a car ferry, through the water of the Hardangerfjord fjord to the local town, Eidfjord.
At Eidfjord the competitors transition onto their bikes and then cycle 180 km through the mountains. First 40 km uphill (reaching 1200 m above sea level).
After transition two (Austbygda), the competitors run 42.2 km. The first 25 km (to Rjukan) are flat. Following this they end up climbing the local mountain, Gaustatoppen, 1,880 m above sea level.
The race time record is 9:43 by Allan Hovda (@allanhov). For women it´s 11:50 by Kirstin Lie (@trikristin), both in 2015, when the swimming was half distance because of cold water.
With full swimming distance the record is 10:23:43 by Henrik Oftedal (@henrikof) in 2012 and 12:17:04 by Annett Finger (@annettfinger) in 2012 for women.
