Zalaris Norseman Xtreme Triathlon is sanctioned by The Norwegian Triathlon Federation (NTF), and we adhere to their rules.
The NTF rules adhere to the International Triathlon Union (ITU) competition rules, so that if your knowledge of Norwegian is limited you can focus on studying the ITU competition rules. Understanding the base rules of triathlon is crucial to having a fair and safe race. Our Athletes Guide only covers the exceptions and additions to the base rules. The ITU paragraph is noted in parenthesis. If there are any conflicts between the ITU and NTF rules, the NTF rule will apply.
Norseman is a long distance “NON drafting event”.
