Norseman is coming up: this is what one of the most brutal races in the world looks like

This weekend – on August 7 to be exact – the Norseman takes place. The race includes a swim in icy water, a bike through inhospitable terrain and finishes with a tremendously long off-road climb up a mountain during the marathon. It is possibly the toughest triathlon in the world.

Because of COVID-19, the organization recently had to decide to allow a maximum of 100 athletes, only Norwegians. But because this race is so spectacular, we would like to inspire you with the recap of the 2019 edition of the Norseman!
