As Norseman 2020 was postponed, 2021 will be the 18th edition of Norseman Xtreme Triathlon and the second time we host the XTRI World Championships. The World Championship is an integral part of the Norseman race and follow the same times and rules.
A result list containing the World Championship only will be published after the race.
