Entering the World Championship
The 2022 World Championship is already full. The athletes qualified in the 2019, 2020 and 2021 XTRI World Tour races and our merit selection.
To qualify for the 2023 World Championship you need to be a top finisher in one of the qualifying XTRI World Tour races. Winners and runners up are invited. This follows the calendar year (2022), and the invitation is for the year following their win (2023).
Other PRO/Elite athletes may apply based on merits from 2019, 2020, 2021 or 2022. If you consider yourself a candidate for the podium, then we might have a slot for you.
Minimum merit requirements to apply for women:
9 hours 45 minutes or faster on an “iron” distance race or similar.
Minimum merit requirements to apply for men:
8 hours 45 minutes or faster on an “iron” distance race or similar.
Applications are submitted during the enrolment process by entering requested PRO/Elite information. Applications are then evaluated by our jury who will rank them and award World Championship slots for the top ranked athletes.
Pro/Elite athletes not making it into the World Championship will be moved over to the general Norseman draw.
