HERITAGE

The SWISSMAN should be a unique and exclusive triathlon experience and remain unforgettable for all participants.

The SWISSMAN is a point-to-point race that starts in the south of Switzerland and leads over three Alpine passes into the heart of Switzerland. The finish is reached after a final climb at the foot of the massive mountain scenery of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The race is extremely challenging and treats participants to breathtakingly beautiful scenery.

At the SWISSMAN, time is secondary. It’s all about the adventure, the unforgettable experience that the athletes share with their coaches, and completing the SWISSMAN challenge. Only the personal performance and the experience in the midst of the breathtaking surroundings are of importance. Neither loudspeakers nor sales stands distract the participants from the unique SWISSMAN experience.

The supporters are an indispensable part of the SWISSMAN. The organisers offer minimal support on the run and bike course. It is the responsibility of the supporters to provide their athletes with everything they need during the race. This fact makes the SWISSMAN a challenge not only for the athletes but also for the supporters. On the final climb to Kleine Scheidegg, the supporters have to compulsorily accompany the athletes and the two cross the finish line together. Both not only experience the event together, but also share unforgettable memories

Another important part of the SWISSMAN spirit is the family atmosphere among the athletes, the supporters, the partners and the SWISSMAN crew. Not everyone is focused on themselves. Everyone gets involved in this adventure together, helps each other and celebrates the finish together on Kleine Scheidegg.

The number of participants is very limited and it is a privilege to be a SWISSMAN finisher.

The SWISSMAN is organised by a group of passionate volunteers, most of them triathletes themselves. Enthusiastic about the spirit of an Xtreme Triathlon, they put all their passion into the volunteer organisation of this event.
