Meet Trude

We had a chat with Trude Gran. She believes Norseman to be the ultimate challenge. She just has to know if she can do it. If she can do Norseman, she blieves that she can do anything.

How I prepare for Norseman

It might not come a surprise that preparing for a race like Norseman should be seen as the main goal of a triathlon season – or at least it might bring some calm leading up to the race, that you know that you have done what you could in terms of being ready to make your way through this tough race.

A tribute to Norseman

This was an old dream, an expression of love to Norseman, love to triathlon and to the beautiful sport of real winter triathlon.

Meet blueseventy and Ryan Vanderloop

As it enters its 10th year, Norseman has attracted a great new sponsor: the innovative wetsuit and tri/swimwear company blueseventy. Based in New Zealand with offices in the US and UK, blueseventy has gone from strength to strength over the years, and Norseman is thrilled to have this partnership for our 2012 competition. We caught up with sponsorship manager Ryan Vanderloop recently to hear what’s happening with the company and to talk triathlon, the blueseventy vision and the partnership with Norseman.

3:1 or 2:1 – What fits you? Start to make a plan.

We are counting down, and the race is only six months away. 

If you don’t have a plan about how to approach those months, now’s the time to make one.

In this little blog I will try to give some ideas about how to plan out the time between now until race day in August. We’ll cover getting started and some thoughts on what to do, and when to do it. These are all key elements in your preparation.
