TORTOUR Ultracycling

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.

The ultracycling experience for every sporting level


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.


You are a key player at the TORTOUR! We are always looking for motivated helpers to accompany our athletes on their journey through Switzerland.

Working as a helper promises a wide range of experiences as part of the TORTOUR community: In addition to racing bike action, a motivated team, fun and the unique opportunity to experience an ultra-cycling event up close, there are attractive helper gifts.
