Not to be confused with Everesting, the Norseman Holiday Quest is managing to “climb a Norseman” 4921 meters (16145 ft) in 44 days. A mere 112 meters a day. If you make the top, one of four complimentary Norseman 2021 slots may be waiting.
COVID 19 postponed Norseman 2020 for one year. Close to all the participants chose to move their starting slot over. As a result, we can’t have the draw that we usually have this time of year. Still, we do want to keep the dream of a chance of taking on Norseman alive.
The Norseman Holiday Quest, done and dusted!
Thank you to all that participated! We really appreciated you taking on the challenge.
Last night we had the draw live on YouTube. Our apologies to those who did not find us. We had a last minute change of URL as our original connection crashed. If you missed it and want to see it, you´ll find it to the right (or on a mobile, below).
Even if for many, the journey is the goal, we did pick six special winners yesterday.

Winners of the NORSEMAN 2021 Slots
Once again, thank you all. We´ll se you in 2021 with more fun stuff.
Introducing the Norseman Holiday Quest.
Published November 1st 2020
The total ascent of Norseman is 4921 meters (16145 ft). We challenge you to log the same climb. If you reach the target, you are automatically in the draw for one of four (2 female & 2 male) complimentary Norseman slots for 2021.
From: November 1st
To: December 15th
Location: Anywhere in the world
How does it work?
You can do the training inside, outside, on Zwift, or in the real world. On a bike, on your feet, your skis, or any other non-motorized way that you prefer. You can use as many sessions as you want to achieve the goal. The key to participate is the public link to your activity.
The participation fee is EUR 10, and out of this, 50% will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.
The Norseman Holiday Quest is your personal challenge. It is NOT a race! It may be a challenge you choose to do alone or with others or a mix of both.
There is a Chance
Every week during the Holiday Quest, our partners and we will try to find some cool additional incentives for you to ride on, run on, climb on, and so on…

The Small Print
*The Norseman Holiday Quest is not a race. It is simply you as an athlete logging your training.
*Participation is at your own risk. The same way it is when you go out to train.
*Even if it is just you out training, we expect you to adhere to traffic rules and regulations as well as any other laws that may apply. And of course to show true sportsmanship and always think fair play.
*The entry fee is non-refundable.
*If you win one of the complimentary Holiday Quest slots, you have 7 days to decide if you want to keep it yourself or give it to someone special. Note that it MUST be a GIFT, and can not be sold. Breach of this clause will result in that starting slot being revoked.
*Due to the COVID 19 situation and the postponed Norseman 2020 race, there will be no normal draw for the 2021 race. If you have additional chances for the Norseman draw, these will be valid for the 2022 draw. Participating (or not participating) in the Norseman Holiday Quest, will not affect your extra chances at a Norseman slot in the future.
The Holiday Quest could not happen without the continous support from our main sponsors!
