The TORTOUR is the largest multi-day non-stop ultracycling event in the world. The race, which starts and finishes in Zurich, demands everything from cyclists and their crew: a 1000-kilometer non-stop race over several Alpine passes around Switzerland can be conquered in just two days – day and night, solo or in a team. The hard, sweaty adventure promises unforgettable emotions and a unique cycling experience.
Security, commitment, sustainability & fairness are important success factors of the TORTOUR. We subject all work to these key terms and ensure a high-quality event for our participants, helpers and partners. We encourage people to enjoy endurance sports and are politically, financially and religiously independent.
