The 11th edition of Norseman Xtreme Triathlon will be held on 3 August 2013. After Norseman’s two day, 10 year anniversary event in 2012, the organisers note that Norseman is back to normal next year – with a single main event.
Enrolment for Norseman 2013 will open at 07:00 CET on Saturday 27 October and close a week later, at 07:00 CET on Saturday 3 November 2012.
Norseman is not a first-come-first-serve event. All who enrol at any time during the week in which enrolment is open, have a ticket in the lottery. The participation fee is NOK 2750 (€370). To register, athletes will need a valid credit card, either Visa or Mastercard. The registration process will authorise cards for this amount, but cards will only be charged to those athletes who are awarded a slot in the 2013 race.
The organisers expect to finalize the lottery by 10 November.
Norseman will award a total of 310 slots. The organisers note that this will typically result in 250 athletes on race day. The number of athletes seeded as elite have also been reduced for 2013, and Norseman notes that the event has trimmed down the sponsor, media and race director quotas.
