Founded in 1996, the Swiss Bike Marathon Race Series, which consists of six races, is now called the “Bike Marathon Classics”. Over a maximum distance of 494 kilometres, mountain bikers tackle an energy-sapping altitude difference of 17,575 metres in the most beautiful regions of West, Central and South Eastern Switzerland. Those participating in the individual series events will automatically be included in the overall rankings. A separate registration is not necessary. Whoever successfully completes 4 races will be entitled to receive a prize. The Bike Marathon Classics Association, which consists of members of the participating competitions, has been the umbrella organisation for the series since 2016.
