Cycling Zombie Hill
Ride 13.8 kilometers gaining 1,029 meters ata 7.4% average grade.
This is part of the final segment (all up hill) of the Norseman one of (if not the) toughest triathlons in the world. This is part of the run, not bike, but it is where the name Zombie Hill derives - it turns extreme athletes who have endured extraordinary physical challenges to that point into “Zombies.”
The turn off for the hike (or run) on the trail for the final portion of the Norseman is on the right at kilometer 12 of our bike climb. From that point you may hike/run the final segment of the Norseman course which from the paved road is 5.2 kilometers gaining 670 meters at an extraordinary 22% average grade (map of run/hike segment).
