Zwift has just announced this year’s Norseman series – a 6-week ride+run training series culminating with the weeklong Norseman Festival of Climbing. With COVID-19 canceling the IRL Norseman race, this will be the only Norseman experience for 2020!
From June 15th through July 26th, Zwift is hosting the Norseman Training series which consists of group ride and run workouts, events, and races. Each of these activities will hit key timezones worldwide, with four different sessions per day.
The bike and run workouts were developed in collaboration with Norseman and feature specific messaging and coaching around different parts of the Norseman course. Notable Norseman finishers and ambassadors will also lead some group rides and runs!

Norseman Festival of Climbing
The training series culminates in The Norseman Festival of Climbing, a week-long celebration of hill climbs around Watopia with a chance to win two entries to Norseman 2021!
The route schedule will be released soon, but each route will build upon the elevation of the previous day.
