The Cervino Cycling Marathon already holds a record – it is the highest cycling race in Europe with its start and finish both at 2050m in Breuil-Cervinia at the foot of one of the most iconic mountains in the world, the Matterhorn (4478m).

“After hosting three stages of the Giro d’Italia with pro-riders,” says Massimo Chatrian, the Councillor of Tourism, Sport and Trade for the area. “We needed a mass race dedicated to amateur cyclists”.

There are two routes for different levels – the longest route is 145km long and 3500m uphill, travelling over three alpine cols and with a final climb from Chatillon to Breuil, 28km long and 1433m uphill. This is a real alpine marathon – tough, challenging and stunning but not extreme.

Less-confident cyclists can take a shorter route which is 95km long with a 2000m uphill climb.
