Tune into watch one of the world's toughest long-distance triathlons – the notorious Isklar Norseman – live this Saturday. The race will be split into five live episodes, capturing key sections where the action is at it's most intense.
Competing in Norseman requires maxiumum mental toughness and takes human physiology to it's limits. When competitors cross the finish line on Gaustatoppen's summit, they will have completed a 3,8km swim, 180km bike ride and a marathon – and climbed 5000 m of altitude along the way!
Unlike traditional triathlons, Norseman is a point-to-point competition. From Eidfjord on the west coast to the finish on Gaustatoppen in the east, Norseman takes competitors through some of the most amazing landscapes Norway has to offer.
