The SWISSMAN is a point to point race starting in the southern part of Switzerland, leading over three mountain passes to the central part of Switzerland and finishing with a final climb in the heart of Switzerland just at the bottom of the massive mountain backdrop of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful and the challenge of the course absolutely extreme.

At the SWISSMAN time is of minor interest. It’s about the adventure, the unforgettable Triathlon experience athletes share with their supporter and about managing the challenge SWISSMAN Xtreme Triathlon. The personal effort and the experience within the breathtaking surrounding are the only things that matter. Neither any loudspeaker, nor huge sales fair will distract the participants from their SWISSMAN experience.

The SWISSMAN is organized by a group of highly passionate volunteers, most of them triathletes themselves. They are fascinated by the special spirit of an Xtreme Triathlon and put their heart and highest efforts into the organization of this event.

I just enjoy doing the race so much! I’m the most happy when I’m 2-3 hours into the cycle. Then I am just so happy! I'm always singing out loud and I ruin my race, because I push too hard.

I enjoy most the whole journey, which has its long festive day, where I can push myself a bit further with my team and all of this in astonishing surroundings.

Mikko Lehmuskoski, FI

Surroundings, friendship between teams and your team pushing you forward. Awesome feeling.

That an xtri is not only with you on race day but from the moment you have an inkling it might be for you and then for the rest of the day. And I loved the soup on Gaustatoppen.
